Fans of campy musicals rejoice! Terrific New Theatre is thrilled to offer you the ALABAMA premiere of The Book of Merman. That’s right. Mormon door-to-door adventures, wrapped up in a celebrated musical parody.

Two young Mormon missionaries ring their last doorbell of the day, which happens to be the home of Ethel Merman, who happens to be looking for a new song.  In return, she helps them discover the kinder and gentler values of old Broadway and true romance.

They’ll have you from “Hello.”
