The musical received glowing reviews from Vogue Magazine, The New York Times and Jon Stewart from The Daily Show.
The Book of Mormon Story
The Book of Mormon was inspired by co-writers Matt Stone and Trey Parker’s upbringing in Colorado, in a community with many members of the Latter Day Saint movement.
The main characters of the play are an unlikely pair, but nonetheless, they’re chosen by church higher-ups to perform missionary work in Uganda—a particularly trying assignment for Price, who had hoped and prayed to be sent to Florida. This questionable missionary team is expected to carry out their mission in a country ravaged by AIDS, poverty, corruption and war. Their efforts to convert followers are thwarted by the horrors the Ugandans villagers have faced every day for decades.
After being abandoned by Price, Cunningham falls into his own conversion devices. Worlds collide as Cunningham mixes Mormon doctrine with classics such as Star Wars and Tolkien’s masterpieces, with hilariously heartwarming results.
The Book of Mormon is performing in Saskatchewan’s premier theater venue, TCU Place. The Arts Center is a 104,000 square foot space located close to many local tourist attractions. TCU Place has hosted many theater productions and performers of both national and international fame.
