Pageant of the Masters Excursion

Join the City of Sierra Madre for an evening of outdoor entertainment at Pageant of the Masters in Laguna Beach on Friday, July 12th, 2013. Pageant of the Masters is a stage show of “living pictures” – incredibly faithful art re-creations of classical and contemporary works with real people posing to look exactly like their counterparts in the original pieces. It is the Festival of Arts’ crowning jewel and arguably one of the most unique productions in the entire world. The outdoor amphitheater, professional orchestra, original score, live narration, intricate sets, and sophisticated lighting make this a fantastic experience and the best presentation of its kind.
