‘The Book Of Mormon’ Is Coming To Melbourne

Written by Nastassia Baroni on April 27, 2015

The creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, are bringing their Broadway hit show The Book Of Mormon to Australia, and have announced the show will debut in Melbourne from January 2017.

“We can’t wait to get started,” Parker and Stone said while announcing the show’s Melbourne season, reports Fairfax. “Everyone says we should look to Tassie for casting so that’s where we’re going first.”

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews even got in on the action, announcing that The Book Of Mormon‘s arrival in Melbourne will “attract thousands of interstate and international visitors to our state, creating more jobs.”

He added that the show will open at Melbourne’s Princess Theatre in January 2017. The musical, which follows two young Mormon missionaries who are sent to a village in Uganda, has won nine Tony Awards and a Grammy following its premiere on Broadway in 2011.

I'm thrilled we're bringing the most successful piece of theatre in the world today to Victoria – The Book of Mormon…
