Hill Cumorah Pageant 2010
I love upstate New York in July! Never mind the flying bugs,
scortching heat, random deluges, etc... July in Palmyra
is Pageant time!! (Can you find me??)
was with my entire family back in 1996 when I was
13 years old. I think my parents got the idea of signing
up from my mom's sister Karen, who had been in the HCP
with her husband Earl and their kids in 1994. Their family
were cast members again in 1996 too - which was great fun!
I loved being in the Hill Cumorah Pageant so much I
always knew I wanted to go back; and finally last year,
after another 13 years, I applied and went back.
so I applied in August of 2009 yet again, and headed out
east at the end of June. I really like that I've been able to
participate in different roles each time I have been in the
Hill Cumorah Pageant; and I love that I get to dance! You're
not allowed to audition for a dancing role until you're 14,
so in 1996 I was in a group scene as a convert at the
Waters of Mormon (don't know what I'm talking about?
Email me - I'll fill you in!). Last year I was a Ceremonial Dancer,
and this year I was a Nephite Dancer and a Destruction
Stunt Victim. I got to die in an incredibly dramatic way that
included a giant fireball and leaping down a short flight of
stairs and tumbling to the ground. It was great!
