Last play of the year. Was it worth the drive to Kitchener? In a word, yes.
It was fun and sometimes laugh out loud funny. The singing was competent and enthusiastic; the dancing was energetic, although Donna Feore has nothing to worry about in the choreography department.
The basic story is that two young men are sent on their mission to convert the people of Africa. The opportunity to offend is enormous: the Mormon Church and the whole continent of Africa. But the writers manage to maintain a balance between poking fun and insulting everyone. Their success seems vindicated by the fact that every ad in the program was from the Mormon Church. I guess the reviews didn’t get to Africa!
You won’t leave the show humming, as none of the songs is memorable enough. But you will leave smiling and happy. Definitely worth the drive!
