Two-time Tony Award winner Sutton Foster and acclaimed British actor Hugh Bonneville will be the featured guest artist and narrator at this year's Christmas concert by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Orchestra at Temple Square, and Bells on Temple Square on December 14, 15, and 16 in the Conference Center in Salt Lake City. The concert will be directed by Mack Wilberg, music director of the Choir, and Ryan Murphy, associate music director.

"Each year there is a new theme for the Christmas concert which magnifies the strengths of our guest artists," said Ron Jarrett, president of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. "With Sutton Foster and Hugh Bonneville headlining the concert, audiences will experience a full-scale production of world class music, dance, and storytelling with amazing visual effects in the Conference Center."

Foster has starred in 11 Broadway shows including her Tony-winning roles in Anything Goes and Thoroughly Modern Millie, as well as originating roles in The Drowsy Chaperone, Young Frankenstein, and Shrek The Musical. On TV, Foster stars as Liza in the TV Land comedy series Younger, and previously starred in Bunheads.

Bonneville is best known to American audiences for his role as Robert, Earl of Grantham in ITV/PBS Masterpiece's Downton Abbey, for which he received a Golden Globe and two Emmy nominations. His many film credits include Notting Hill, Iris, The Monuments Men, and the two Paddington movies.
