The Ramona Pageant

The L.A. Times has an interesting article on the venerable Ramona Pageant, which has been performed at the Ramona Bowl in Hemet, California, since 1923.

The pageant, based on the novel by Helen Hunt Jackson, is a community production which is said to be the longest-running outdoor play in the nation. Audiences have declined in recent years, perhaps due to competition from nearby casinos and other entertainment choices.

RAMONA, incidentally, was filmed in 1936 with Don Ameche and Loretta Young in the leads.
