THE BOOK OF MORMON

 

The Book of MormonThe Book of Mormon is a musical religious satire which lampoons organized religion and traditional musical theatre.

It tells the story of two young Mormon missionaries sent to a remote village in northern Uganda where a brutal war lord is threatening the local population.

The missionaries are very naive and optimistic and try to share one of their scriptures (the Book of Mormon) with the locals, but they are more worried about war, famine, poverty and AIDS.

The musical currently stars K J Hippensteel as Elder Price, Steven Webb/Moroni/Elder McKinley, Cody Jamison Strand/Elder Cunningham, Dean Maynard/ Price's Dad/Joseph Smith/Mission President, Stephen Rolley/Cunningham's Dad, - Ngozi Ugoh/Mrs Brown, Sackie Osokonor & Rodney Vubya/Guards, Richard Lloyd-King/Mafala Hatimbi, Alexandra Ncube/ Nabalungi, Michael Moulton/ General and Nicholas McLean as the doctor.
