The 2011 Tony Award winning musical The Book of Mormon, the first Broadway musical from the creators of “South Park,” has extended its booking period and is now selling tickets through to 7 Oct 2012.

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.

The show won nine 2011 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and has been a box office hit with a regular house attendence of 102%.

The Book of Mormon stars Josh Gad (Elder Cunningham) and Andrew Rannells (Elder Price), with a principal cast that includes Nikki M. James (Nabalungi) - who won a Tony Award for her performance, Rory O’Malley (Elder McKinley) and Michael Potts (Mafala Hatimbi).

The show is choreographed by Casey Nicholaw and directed by Nicholaw and Trey Parker - joint winners of the 2011 Tony Award for best direction of a musical.
