The Tony Award-winning boisterous, high energy musical with Book, Music and Lyrics by Lionel Bart will feature a cast of 22 local actors:

Jaryn Lasentia, Marcus Wolf, Gloria Lee Alcala, John Klise, Kyle Spens, David Clement, Dan Munro, Margaret West, Joshua Barret, Julee Felts, Taryn Keller, Monika Bauer, David Breyman, Bonnie Cahill, Sunga Rose, StaggerLee Cole, Audrey Herold, Phillip Meader Yetter, Mila Gatterson, Nicholas Spencer, Cameron Merkle and Cory Maxwell.

The entire production will be directed by ATC Artistic Director Scott Charles Francis. The 12 member orchestra will be conducted by Musical Director Michelle Choate with Vocal Direction by Dori Baunsgard. The Costume Designer is Fawn Bartlett with Sound Design by Jordan Gerow, Dialect Coaching by Alyssa Keene and Stage Management by Cassandra Thorpe and Assistant Rebecca Williamson.
