Join us for our annual medieval celebration of Epiphany (Three Kings Day) on January 3, 2021.
The Boar’s Head Pageant typically incorporates the talents of 200+ cast and crew members. This year, to eliminate the potential for community spread of the coronavirus through our event, we are planning something unique – a “virtual” Boar’s Head Pageant!
Since 2003, the congregation of St. Albert the Great Catholic Church has proudly presented this beautiful and historic production to the people of Austin. The Boar’s Head Pageant features:
- period costumes
- a full chorus and orchestra
- medieval music, dancing and entertainment
- an inspiring reenactment of the arrival of the Magi at the birthplace of Jesus
On Sunday, January 3, 2021, we will be airing an online special consisting of video clips and photos from past productions. There will also be sing-alongs of some of your favorite carols and a preview of a new scene that underscores the special significance of Epiphany to Christians.
We encourage you to plan a “Boar’s Head Watch Party” with your family that night! If you’ve haven’t seen the show before, it will be a great introduction to our live performances. Watching will uplift your spirit during this challenging year. If you have seen it before, you’ll enjoy reminiscing about how the Pageant has evolved over the years – and you may even spot your friends and family members in the old photos!
As we get closer to January, we will publish details of how to connect and experience the Virtual Boar’s Head Pageant. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy – and save the date!
