Ricoleau will star as Elder Price in the show's Chicago production, which begins performances on December 11 at the Bank of America Theatre. In addition to Ricoleau, the Chicago company will feature Ben Platt (Elder Cunningham) and Stephanie Umoh (Nabalungi).

The show features book, music and lyrics by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone. The production is choreographed by Casey Nicholaw and is directed by Nicholaw and Parker. The production won nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
