It is a 12-year-old script but the story never gets old.

From 6:30-8:30 p.m. April 11, the Santa Fe Stake of the Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Church will present a timeless story in the form of a pageant titled, “Christ’s Passage to Resurrection” at the Los Alamos ward.

Brent and Marcia Boyack of Los Alamos wrote the script, which is based on the King James’ version of the New Testament.

“We wanted to provide a special Easter experience for members of our church,” Brent said.

“We wanted also to invite the community to share that experience.”

The script, he explained, is made up of seven different vignettes, which depict Christ’s last days.

“The focus was to help people realize what He did for us,” Marcia said.

Each vignette is about five minutes long and each scene is held in different locations so the audience travels from scene to scene.

Brent added the audience is allowed to get near each stage so what is being presented feels real. The idea, he said, to create an intimate experience.

“One of things that help people feel these events is we don’t actually present Jesus,” Marcia said. “The scenes are like they just occurred so people feel like they are witnesses.”

This is the first time that the pageant has been held in Los Alamos. In previous years, the pageant has been held in the White Rock Ward.

“We’re hoping for a good turnout from Los Alamos,” Marcia said.

The pageant will also be presented in Santa Fe and Española. The Española Chapel will host the pageant from 6:30-8:30 p.m. April 3 and the Santa Fe Chapel will also present the pageant from 6:30-        8:30 p.m. April 10.

There will also be a  tour in Spanish beginning at 7 p.m.

All showings are free to the public.
