Award-winning musical comedy The Book of Mormon is one of the most acclaimed shows in the world and it is finally coming to Birmingham as part of its first UK tour.

The Book of Mormon will be at Birmingham Hippodrome from 4 March to 28 March, 2020.

It follows a pair of Mormon boys who have been sent on a mission to a place that's a long way from their home in Salt Lake City.

The satire follows them as they try and spread their faith to residents in a remote Ugandan village, who are already preoccupied dealing with problems of famine, warlords, HIV and female genital mutilation.

Following their adventures, there's plenty of laughs as there's a top comedy creative team behind the show.

The Book of Mormon was written by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, who are the creators of hit TV comedy South Park, along with Robert Lopez.

Lopez is also famous for his comedy as co-creator of the famed naughty puppet musical show Avenue Q. He also co-wrote songs for Disney's Frozen and Coco and is one of only fifteen artists to win all four major entertainment awards of an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.

With that calibre of writers it's no wonder that The Book of Mormon has won over 30 international prizes including Tony, Olivier and Grammy Awards since premiering in 2011.

This UK tour taking in regions including Birmingham, Nottingham and Manchester has been long-awaited as the London production has sold out every one of its 2,766 performances to date at the Prince of Wales Theatre since it opened in February 2013.

It set a new record for the highest single day of sales in West End history.

The show lasts 2 hours and 30 minutes including one interval and has guidance for parents that there is explicit language.

Tickets cost from 15 from the Birmingham Hippodrome website or call 0844 338 5000.
