"The Book of Mormon" is on stage at The Kennedy Center, and it's not too late to get tickets.

The production is the creation of Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone. Parker and Stone are the writers behind "South Park," and Lopez is co-creator of the hit musical comedy "Avenue Q."

"The Book of Mormon" won nine Tony Awards and began its first national tour last summer. It offers an offensive, but funny look at two missionaries stationed in Uganda.

The show runs through Aug. 18, and The Kennedy Center says some seats are still available. The theater is also offering $25 standing room tickets that can be purchased in person for a day-of performance.
