Final Hill Cumorah Pageant Will Be Postponed Due To Pandemic
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Hill Cumorah Pageant, which was scheduled for July, will be postponed to next year, according to a statement from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The event was moved due to concerns over the coronavirus pandemic. The upcoming run will be the pageants’s final performance.
“The Hill Cumorah Pageant brings people from all over the world, and this just isn’t the time to do that,” said Pageant President Neil Pitts. “We are happy to know that it has been moved to another year. It would have been heartbreaking to have ended with a cancelation.”
The pageant has been performed annually in Manchester, New York, by the Church since 1937. In 2018, it was announced that several of the Church’s large-scale productions, including the Hill Cumorah Pageant, would halt.
The final production of the Hill Cumorah Pageant will run July 8 – 10 and 13 – 17, 2021.
