Australia, the Mormons are back! The Tony®, Olivier® and Grammy® award-winning production THE BOOK OF MORMON will return to Sydney from July 2025.

 

Winner of nine Tony Awards® including Best Musical and the Grammy® for Best Musical Theatre album, The Book of Mormon follows a pair of mismatched Mormon boys sent on a mission to a place that’s about as far from Salt Lake City as you can get. It will premiere at the Capitol Theatre in Sydney from July 2025.

 

THE BOOK OF MORMON made its world premiere in March 2011 at Broadway’s Eugene O’Neil Theatre. The London production opened in February 2013 at the Prince of Wales Theatre, winning four Olivier Awards®, including Best New Musical.

 

The show has set house records at 27 theatres across the US and broke theatre sales records at New York’s Eugene O’Neill Theater more than 50 times. The London production broke box office records for the highest single day of sales in West End history.

 

The Australian premiere season in Melbourne in 2015 broke the record for the highest selling on-sale period of any production in Melbourne’s Princess Theatre’s 159-year history and also won the Helpmann Award for Best Musical.

 

THE BOOK OF MORMON features book, music and lyrics by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone. The production is co-directed by Casey Nicholaw and Parker and choreographed by Nicholaw.

THE BOOK OF MORMON is co-directed and choreographed by the Tony, Olivier, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award-winning Casey Nicholaw. His Broadway and West End credits include Disney’s AladdinDreamgirlsMean Girls, Monty Python’s SpamalotThe Prom and The Drowsy Chaperone.
