Nauvoo Pageants Core Cast Auditions 2022


The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is seeking professional-quality actors to fill 20 core cast roles in the summer 2022 Nauvoo Pageants. For adults ages 20-65, there are ten roles for men and nine roles for women, and there is one role for a teen boy.

There are 2 parts to this audition process. The vocal audition will be recorded in the comfort of your own home and submitted through the digital audition form prior to your acting audition, and the acting audition will be conducted via Zoom. 


Please, film yourself singing 16 bars of a musical theater ballad or similar style that shows your vocal range and ability. Upload your video to a video sharing service such as YouTube or Vimeo and copy/paste the link into the digital audition form HERE. Please be sure your video link is unlisted or public as many people on the creative team will require access. Most pageant roles do not require singing. However, core cast members with musical talent may be featured in community appearances and civic functions. Please submit your filmed singing audition ASAP - ideally by 11:59PM on January 31st.


Please sign up for an audition slot through the Airtable Digital Audition Form (1 slot per person) on either February 4th from 6-9PM, February 5th from 9-3PM, or February 8th from 6-9PM. The material to prepare for the acting portion of the audition can be found HERE. We would suggest printing it out or having it available on a separate electronic device so you can refer to it during the audition. There is no need to be completely memorized, just familiar with it enough so that you're prepared to read for any role.

Call backs will be held by invitation February 11th and 12th at the Bountiful Regional Center.


The Nauvoo Pageant and the British Pageant will be performed on alternating nights in Nauvoo during the summer of 2022. The core cast will perform both shows. The rigorous nature of this outdoor summer pageant requires that the core cast members be experienced, faithful Latter-day Saint performers demonstrating a high degree of maturity, flexibility, and willingness to work long hours. Good health is essential. In an effort to manage the health demands and risks for the core cast this year, all core cast members will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Once cast, candidates must also receive their bishop's recommendation.

For core cast members, the pageant will cover transportation to and from Nauvoo and will provide housing and meals while in Nauvoo. Due to the length of the pageant run, core cast members will also receive a modest honorarium appropriate to their role. For further information, please direct inquiries to the casting hotline at 801-240-9300.
