Savior of the World is a two-hour musical production performed in the Conference Center Theater in Salt Lake City, Utah. It is based on the events surrounding the birth and Resurrection of Jesus Christ and was first performed in 2000 for the inauguration of the Church’s Conference Center Theater. Performances will begin November 21, 2014, and will run through January 3, 2015.

Cast members are chosen, in part, for their theatrical ability, but directors are also seeking those with a desire to share their witness of Jesus Christ. The more than 100 speaking and singing parts are recast every year, bringing new participants to the production.
