Details of Pageant Of The Masters and the Ticket Luck value
Pageant of the Maters is a traditional festival that takes place each year in California from July to September. It is organized and managed by the Festival of Arts in the city of Laguna Beach, Southern California. Pageant of the Maters is an art event in which real people dress up like characters in contemporary paintings and use all sorts of props to recreate "living paintings". The real paintings are usually placed next to the "living painting" sets, so that people can see and compare how accurately they has been recreated. This art festival was founded in 1933 when a California based artist called Lolita Perine had this idea and she asked some of the locals to wear costumes and stand behind a big frame. However, the debut festival did not meet the standards of quality many art enthusiasts were expecting. Roy Ropp made major enhancements and improvements to the pageant the following year. Roy Ropp presided over the pageant till his death in 1974 and earned the title of "Father of the Pageant". The people of Southern California have made it a tradition since then, and have held two events each year with the exception of an interruption caused by the World War II. Each "living picture" is performed for about 90 minutes and these events are often complemented by narration and commentary by professional artists and an orchestra.
Not only is this festival appreciated and attended by Californians, but many art enthusiasts and tourists arrive from other cities to be a part of this exciting art event. Pageant of the Masters is mostly performed and organized by thousands of volunteers. The auditions for this festival start in January and people from across Southern California audition for it each year. The Pageant management committee divides the entire volunteer workforce into two groups called Green and Blue to make the time shifts more efficient. Pageant of the Masters' board tried to move the festival out of the city of Laguna Bay in 2000, but it was met with overwhelming resistance and they agreed to sign a forty year lease with the city.
