This must-see production created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of the Emmy and Peabody award-winning television show, South Park, tells the story of a pair of chirpy America lads from Salt Lake City who have just completed their training and are sent on a mission to a small underprivileged village in Africa.

Tasked with educating the people living in poverty about how the Book of Mormon can change their lives, Elder Price and Elder Cunningham have a challenge on their hands. Following their journey, you meet hilarious (and some unsavoury) characters along the way.

Elder Cunningham played by Connor Peirson is hugely talented and has you rooting for the underdog from the very start. The play is full of catchy songs that are perfectly executed by the entire cast, with standout solos from Nicole-Lily Baisden in the role of Nabulungi. 

This production pushes boundaries and will leave you wanting more. An outrageous comedy with plenty of laughs but not for the faint hearted!
