“It’s a village in turmoil, with disease, famine, but there’s also hope for a better life when she meets these two missionaries who have a much different take on faith than the Christian missionaries she’s used to,” says Ncube, whose credits include the equally irreverent Avenue Q, which was penned by Book of Mormon co-conspirator Robert Lopez.

'The Book of Mormon' comes to the Keller Auditorium in Portland on July 8. Hillsboro High School graduate David Larsen plays starring role of Elder Price.
Fifteen years ago David Larsen effectively left the Portland area, attending Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, living briefly in Los Angeles and then settling down and establishing his acting career in New York City with his wife, Amanda Kloots Larsen.
This week, Larsen returns triumphantly, starring in the ultra-successful Broadway musical “The Book of Mormon,” playing Elder Price, an alpha-male do-gooder who thinks highly of himself.
To the contrary, as much as he has been through in 15 years, Larsen has been humbled by such notoriety.
“I feel fortunate to continue to work in this business,” says Larsen, 34, a Hillsboro High School graduate. “I’m glad that it happened. I’ve been working toward it for a long time.”
