‘Mormon’ trip planned

CLINTON — Tickets are available to travel to Chicago with the YWCA to see “The Book of Mormon” at the Bank of America Theatre on Saturday. There also is a “bus-only option” available, for those wishing to take a day-trip into Chicago.

“The Book of Mormon” follows the story of two missionaries who are both naïve and optimistic, trying to share the Book of Mormon. However, they have trouble connecting with the locals, who are more worried about war, famine, poverty, and AIDS. This play contains explicit language, and is for mature audiences only.

Trip price is $90 for YWCA members and $95 for community members. Trip price includes theater ticket and transportation. There is also bus-only option for $35.

Drop offs will be made at Water Tower Place and the Theater District. The bus will leave the YWCA parking lot at 7:30 a.m. Showtime is 2 p.m.

Tickets are limited. Reserve a seat by calling the YWCA at 242-2110.
