A summer tradition is underway again in Central Utah. It's the 44th season of the Mormon Miracle Pageant in Manti.

Since 1967, the pageant has told the story of the early history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and depicted scenes from The Book of Mormon.

It takes place each year on the hill of the Manti Utah Temple.

"You've got 900 actors and then 300 people working behind the scenes, and you are working to bring that all together and make it all work at once," said pageant director Laren Swensen. "It's part of the miracle of the pageant because we do this in 13 rehearsals."

Everyone involved in the production is a volunteer.
