Casting has been announced for Westchester Broadway Theatre's production of the musical Sugar, to run April 29-July 3, with an opening on May 6. Charles Repole will direct, with musical direction by Jeff Tanski and choreography by Michael O'Steen.

Featuring music and lyrics by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill, and a book by Peter Stone, the musical is based on Billy Wilder's 1959 comic masterpiece Some Like It Hot. Two musicians in 1920s Chicago are unwilling witnesses to a showdown between rival bootleggers and need to get out of town fast. The only jobs to be had are in an all-girl band conveniently headed for sunny Miami.

The production will star Gary Lynch as Joe/Josephine, Eric Santagata as Jerry/Daphne, and Colleen Hawks as Sugar Kane, with Ed Romanoff as Osgood Fielding, Jr., Yoav Levin as Spats Palazzo, and Ann-Ngaire Martin as Sweet Sue.

The design team will include Steve Loftus (scenic design), Matthew Hemesath (costume design), Andrew Gmoser (lighting design), and Jon Hatton (sound design).
