Hit musical The Book of Mormon will head out on a new UK tour in 2024 - including an extended run in Manchester. The comedy musical created by South Park's Trey Parker and Matt Stone played to sell-out crowds on its last tours here in 2019 and 2021.

Producers had teased a major announcement last week - releasing a number of pictures showing the huge "The Mormons are coming posters" at Manchester landmarks. Now, we can confirm that the hit Broadway and West End show will be heading to Manchester's Palace Theatre in September 2024 for a four week run.

Tickets for the new run of shows will go on sale on Friday, November 10. The tour will start in Manchester, before heading to Edinburgh and Birmingham in 2024 too.

The musical follows the story of two missionaries sent to preach the Mormon religion to a remote Ugandan village. The two young men find a notable lack of interest from the villagers, who have bigger things to deal with - such as famine, AIDS, and warfare.

Written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, with Avenue Q's Robert Lopez, The Book of Mormon has been showing at London's Prince of Wales theatre since 2013. It is known for its risque and often jaw-dropping satire.
