Casting has been announced for the Gloucester Stage production of Bob Merrill and Michael Stewart's musical, Carnival, to run July 5-22. Eric C. Engel will direct, with musical direction by Todd C. Gordon and choreography by Jodi Leigh Allen.

Alternating between the dark and the delightful, this rarely performed musical features a touching love story, spirit-lifting melodies and soul searching ballads.

The cast will include Gus Curry as Paul the puppeteer, Daniel Robert Sullivan as Marco The Magnificent, Shannon Lee Jones as the Incomparable Rosalie and Victoria Thornsbury as Lili. The production also features four young student actors from the Gloucester Stage Youth Acting Workshops, a professional training program for young people: TS Burnham, Madison McCarthy, Olivia Osterman and Sara Wheeler.
