It’s been the worst kept secret in Perth but now we can announce that not only is the hit musical The Book of Mormon is heading to Crown Theatre from Tuesday, September 3 until Sunday, September 29 while in Australia for its national run, but tickets are on sale now!
From South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and Avenue Q co-creator Robert Lopez, The Book of Mormon is the winner of nine Tony Awards including Best Musical and picked up a Grammy for Best Musical Theatre Album. First staged in 2011, the play makes light of various Mormon beliefs and practices, but ultimately endorses the positive power of love and service.
The Book of Mormon follows two Mormon missionaries as they attempt to preach the Mormon religion to the inhabitants of a remote Ugandan village. The earnest young men are challenged by the lack of interest of the locals, who are distracted by more pressing issues such as AIDS, famine and oppression from the village warlords.
The Book of Mormon is showing at Crown Theatre from Tuesday, September 3 until Sunday, September 29. Tickets on sale now from bookofmormonmusical.com.au/ticketing/perth/.
