Currently playing to sold out houses at the Lyric Theatre, QPAC, the hit musical, written by Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Robert Lopez, will return from 3 January 2020 for a strictly limited season. Tickets will go on sale on Monday 25 March 2019.

The Book of Mormon has notched up 823 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.

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

Since making its world premiere in March 2011 at New York’s Eugene O’Neill Theatre, where it won nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical, The Book of Mormon has been performed on three continents and won over thirty international awards. 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.

The Book of Mormon is produced in Australia by Anne Garefino, Scott Rudin, Important Musicals and John Frost. For more information, visit: www.bookofmormonmusical.com.au for details.
