About Pageant of the Masters

Each year, the Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach, California hosts an extraordinary event known as the Pageant of the Masters. For generations, Orange County has proudly honored its longstanding high-culture tradition. Each summer, the Pageant is presented for eight weeks and features 90 minutes of living scenes accompanied by a professional narrator, an orchestra, and melodious tunes sung by experienced vocalists. By dressing them up in costumes, applying makeup and headdresses to their likenesses, strategically utilizing lighting and props, as well as constructing backdrops that echo the originals; crafty artisans bring classic works of art, fine art, and modern masterpieces to life through remarkable recreations of real people. Organized by a large team of volunteers and supported by a dedicated staff, The Pageant is sure to be an impressive event. The casting of volunteers from all across Southern California will get underway in January to kickstart the production process. It takes a whopping 60,000 volunteer hours over two months in July and August for the Pageant to go ahead as planned.

To reduce the time spent by individual volunteers on elaborate costumes and makeup, the Pageant has come up with a clever solution - they have two full casts known as Blue and Green that rotate back and forth. This way, both sets of performers can enjoy all the benefits without having to invest too much in terms of their volunteer hours. The Festival of Arts was proudly presented for the first time in 1932, followed by the inaugural performance of its renowned Pageant a year later in 1933. Since then, the two events have been taking place annually during summertime; this being disrupted for four years by World War II and in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Marking the first presentation of "living pictures" (tableaux vivants), 2024 brings with it a momentous celebration as The Festival and Pageant of the Masters honors its 90th anniversary with an awe-inspiring show entitled 'Art Colony: In the Company of Artists'. Show Venues and Locations: Irvine Bowl Laguna Beach CA, 650 Laguna Canyon Road Laguna Beach CA, Garden Ahmanson Theatre Los Angeles.
