Day 357 – Easter Pageant

28 Mar

Every year Southeast Christian puts on an Easter Pageant that has become quite well-known in this area. It is a full on production with live animals, full set, and special effects such a angels soaring over the crowd. I have heard about it over and over since I was younger but never went to see it until tonight. This is the last year for the pageant and it saddens me that I didn’t see it sooner. It was an awesome show and I am in awe of how much work had to go into putting something like this together. The church holds about ten thousand people so you can get an idea of how big a production this was.

Remember me mentioning that I cry at the drop of a hat? Well it was full on waterworks tonight. I may post more photos but for now I am just going to post a couple because it is late and I am exhausted. I was REALLY far away so excuse the quality.

Thank you to my nephew Chris and his beautiful wife Kristin for treating all of us tonight and thank you to the rest of my amazingly wonderful family for sharing such a great evening with me.

I also want to thank everyone for the wonderfully kind comments on yesterday’s post. I can’t tell you how much it meant to me.

    Amazing shots, love the first one that shadow is great!

    The whole Easter story is a very touching one, I’d probably be crying too!

    Just looking at your photos, I can only imagine the production. It looks incredibly well done and emotional. Your photos are powerful. Well done, even through the waterworks!

    This production is equal to any stage show – it must have been very moving. No wonder you cried buckets. Your photographs are amazing, I agree the first one is quite wonderful – all the good stuff you want to think about the Easter story personified and you’ve caught both the bitter and the sweet with the shadow in the back and the dove on the man’s shoulder.

    Well done.

    Margaret summed up my feelings. For being far away, you pulled it off.

    You weren’t supposed to take photos!! Shame Shame..
    No, I’m just kidding.. I mean, you weren’t, cuzz it scared the animals and the animals can seriously hurt the cast, plus it’s a huge distraction, but most people did anyways.
    I’m glad you got to see it, and I’m glad that you liked it.
