The address is: 245 South, Fort Douglas Blvd. Salt Lake City, UT. See the MISSION the Musical Web site for more details.
About the Show
“It is the story of two young men from very different worlds. Kendall is just turning nineteen and trying to decide what to do with his life. His protective mother is pushing him to go on a mission, but he isn’t so sure. Meekum, a fictional character from the Book of Mormon, is just the opposite. He wants to set out on his own mission and fight for Helaman. His mother has her reservations and wants him to stay, but knows what the right thing to do is. Two young men, the same age, with very different mindsets going to fight the same “simple war.” Along the way both will meet interesting and unforgettable characters. Both will learn valuable lessons about life, faith, and the power of decisions. And both will forge the unbreakable bond of friendship that forms when in the service of God.”
