Earlier in the week, posters were spotted on Sydney bus stops hinting that the multi-award-winning musical by the creators of South Park, Book of Mormon, would be heading north after its run in Melbourne.

The rumours were confirmed today on the musical's Australian Facebook page. It will open in Sydney in February 28, 2018. Tickets will go on sale on September 5. Over 200 shows sold out in Melbourne so it's worth signing up to the waitlist for presale news.
