The York Theatre Company has announced full casting for Smiling, The Boy Fell Dead, the next production in the Winter 2014 Musicals in Mufti Series Celebrating Sheldon Harnick. The musical features a book by Ira Wallach, music by David Baker, and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick. The limited engagement will play five performances from February 21-23 at The York Theatre Company at Saint Peter's.

Smiling, The Boy Fell Dead is a musical comedy from off-Broadway's 1961 season that tells the story of a hero who overcomes extraordinary obstacles to gain a girl, fortune, and family honor. Set in the Midwest at the turn of the last century, it spoofs Horatio Alger rags-to-riches tales.

The cast features Anthony Apicella, Reathel Bean, Anthony Blaha, Allison Carr, Emily Daly, Laura Darrell, Matt Dengler, Nick Gaswirth, David Green, Rose Hemingway, Nancy Johnston, Judy Kaye, Paul Murphy, and Tony Roberts.

Music direction is by Joseph Baker, with casting by Geoff Josselson.

The York Theatre Company's Musicals in Mufti series stages little-produced works of musical theater in a book-in-hand concert format. More than 90 shows have been presented in its 29-year history.
