An Easter tradition in Marion since 1937.  Biennial presentation of this community historical event. Admission is free, but you must have a ticket for entry. Tickets available at the YMCA.   First come, first served. General admission seating.  The Marion Easter Pageant a full scale theatrical production that is unique in that no spoken commentary is ever used. The moving story of the last week of the life of Christ on earth is told entirely with pantomime, pageantry and the music of great anthems and familiar hymns. It’s the rare experience where no one is all-important and yet each individual is very important. Each person is anonymous – no names are mentioned.  The floor of Marion’s Memorial Coliseum (YMCA) seems to be magically transformed into the streets of Jerusalem.  The Pageant begins with the Palm Sunday entry of Jesus into the city of Jerusalem. The story, presented in six separate scenes, transports the audience through the joys, sufferings, trials and sorrows leading to Resurrection morning. The Pageant concludes the one-hour performance with the “Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s Messiah which expresses the universal exultation of all Christendom.
