The play is scripture-based and not intended to promote any particular denomination. The pageant itself is sponsored by the Austin-area Lutheran Churches-Missouri Synod. Cast members, however, come from all Christian denominations, from Catholic to Methodist to Baptist.
Many churches within an hour or two of the Austin area arrange for church vans or a bus to bring large numbers of members to the performance. The committee is careful to select venues where we will not run out of seating.
The Easter Triumph is non-profit, and there is no admission charge to attend the performance. Production costs are paid through a free-will offering and memorial donations made to the pageant.
The pageant is guided by a Steering Committee of cast members. You may contact the committee or the pageant director by clicking on "Contact" below.
The Easter Triumph is an 80-minute passion play performed by 150 cast members from the Austin area. The play is an outreach, and the committee purposely selects venues outside of church settings to encourage the entire community to attend.
