In some years the pageant has embraced and intertwined several winter holiday stories from Christmas to Hanukah to Diwali, the Hindu festival of light.
"We always have a blast putting the pageant together," Beaudoin said. "In general we draw from the winter solstice traditional stories. …We do that because the story of the return of the light is cross-cultural and cross-global."
The pageant starts in the dark, narrated by Rob Eichler, "The Sun King is very weary and diminishing."
