75th Anniversary of Easter Pageant

University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (KTEM)

(KTEM) The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor celebrated the 75th anniversary of  Easter Pageant this Wednesday. The event draws crowds from around Central Texas averaging around 5,000 spectators every year. With more than 240  university students and 110  children from around Belton participating in this year’s production, it was the largest pageant in UMHB history.

 

The production details the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the central figure of Christianity and University values. Key moments from Christ’s ministry including the Last Supper, salvation of an adulterous woman from stoning, crucifixion and resurrection were highlighted.

 

The outdoor drama  took place at the Luther Memorial on campus and was produced completely by students. This year’s director was Jason Aleman, a senior from Round Rock, TX. Music was provided by One Voice, the University’s award-winning chorale.

 

Karl Baker of Graham, TX, played the role of Jesus and Esther Gibbs of Rockwall, TX, played Mary, the mother of Jesus. The tradition combines members of the community and the University to celebrate the life and death of Jesus Christ and his message of love, self-sacrifice and redemption.
