The Book of Mormon is ready to begin the new season of Broadway in San Antonio at the Majestic Theatre on Tuesday September 17, 2013. This national tour production will conduct a pre-show lottery at the box office each day and is making a limited number of tickets available at $25 each.
At every city of the national tour the producers of the show offer these low priced lottery tickets and they have become extremely popular. Two and a half hours before each performance each person participating will be allowed to print their names and the number of tickets they wish to purchase on a card. This card will then be placed in a lottery drum and thirty minutes later names will be drawn for a limited number of orchestra seats at $25 each (cash only). The lottery is open to the public only in person at the box office with a limit of two tickets per person. Tickets are subject to availability.
Elder Kevin Price and Elder Arnold Cunningham are sent to Uganda for a two-year mission. Upon their arrival the villagers share their experiences of living with famine, poverty and AIDS. Eventually they meet the other missionaries who are stationed there but have been unable to convert anyone to Mormonism. Convinced he will be different, he tries to teach the natives about Joseph Smith, the founder of their religion but he has trouble connecting with the natives.
The Book of Mormon is a religious satire musical by Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Robert Lopez. Stone and Parker are the creators of South Park and Lopez is one of the composers of Avenue Q. It won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 2011. Please be aware that it contains explicit language.
