The award winning musical ‘The Book of Mormon’ is coming to Perth

The Book of Mormon, Broadway’s smash hit musical written by Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Robert Lopez, is coming to Perth this September.

The show which has picked up a swag of awards around the globe will open at the Crown Theatre on 3rd September for a limited season. The show has already had successful runs in Sydney and Melbourne, and is on its way to Brisbane and Adelaide in the coming months.

The Book of Mormon has notched up 816 Australian performances since opening at Melbourne’s Princess Theatre in January 2017 for a one year run, before moving to the Sydney Lyric Theatre from February 2018 where it played for a further year.

Tickets go on sale on 13th March but the ticket waitlist is now open at Sign up to receive priority-booking information for your chance to see The Book of Mormon first in Perth.

The show is written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, alongside Robert Lopez – the co-creator of Avenue Q and songwriter for Frozen. 

The Book of Mormon is the winner of nine Tony Awards including Best Musical, the Grammy for Best Musical Theatre album and four Olivier Awards including Best New Musical.

The show set a record for the highest grossing on-sale of any musical theatre production in Sydney’s history with more than 45,000 tickets sold by the end of the first day of public sales, and is the highest grossing musical in the Princess Theatre’s 159-year history in Melbourne.

At the 2017 Helpmann Awards, The Book of Mormon was crowned winner of the coveted Best Musical award, while Trey Parker and Casey Nicholaw were awarded Best Direction of a Musical.
