Young Performing Missionaries

Every Summer 20 talented young men and women are chosen to come to Nauvoo to perform a variety of musical productions. These lively shows tell stories of the Mormon pioneers who lived in Old Nauvoo in the 1840's. They begin their summer performances on Memorial Day Weekend! Plan on staying another couple of days, after the marathon, with your family, to take in all of their shows!

There is no cost to attend the shows, but some require tickets reserved in advance. The quantity for each show IS limited, but available on a first come, first served basis.

Shows include:

  • The Promise
  • Just Plain Anna Amanda
  • Rendezvous in Old Nauvoo
  • Sunset by the Mississippi (no tickets required)
  • Youth of Zion (no tickets required)
  • Nauvoo Brass Band (no tickets required)
  • Bagpipers (no tickets required)

Proceeds from the marathon will be donated to the HISTORY OF THE SAINTS project and the local FOOD PANTRIES.
