About the Pageant of the Masters

The Pageant of the Masters is the Festival of Arts’ crowning jewel and arguably one of the most unique productions in the entire world.

On each evening of the Festival of Arts summer schedule, ticket holders are amazed and enchanted by ninety minutes of tableaux vivants (living pictures), incredibly faithful re­creations of classical and contemporary works of art, with real people posing to look exactly like their counterparts in the original pieces.

An outdoor amphitheater, professional orchestra, original score, live narration, intricate sets, sophisticated lighting, expert staff and hundreds of dedicated volunteers have won recognition for the Pageant of the Masters as the best presentation of its kind.


Additionally, the event is looking for non-model volunteers. Volunteers are also needed for positions in the wardrobe, make up, and headdress departments.

Open casting call for the Pageant of the Masters. Come on down next weekend to sign up, get measured, meet our creative staff and get a sneak peek of the 2017 show! Volunteers of all ages needed!
