That is just one facet of many. While Harris’ story is the outline of the pageant, those involved want the main focus to be on the Restoration and coming forth of the Book of Mormon.
“The essence really is that it’s a testimony of the Book of Mormon — how it was translated and published, what the force was behind it," Willie said. "It really isn’t a one-man story.”
With that being said, “Without Martin, it never would have gotten published,” Willie added.
The pageant is at the Martin Harris Memorial Amphitheater, 1100 N. 8400 West, and is scheduled Aug. 2-3, 6-10 and 13-17. Shows begin at 8:30 p.m. For tickets and additional information, call 435-563-9090 or visit www.clarkstonpageant.org.
