Full cast and creative team information has been announced for Bard SummerScape's production of George and Ira Gershwin's Of Thee I Sing, August 1-10. Will Pomerantz will direct and choreograph.

The satirical musical tells the story of fictitious bachelor candidate John P. Wintergreen bid for the presidency on a platform of "love," and the search by his handlers for a hook to snare voters: a beauty contest, staged to find him a bride (Miss White House). The score is by George Gershwin, lyrics are by Ira Gershwin, and the book is by George S. Kaufman and Morrie Ryskind.

The cast will include John Bolton (Wintergreen), Amy Justman (Mary Turner), Janine Davita (Diana Deveraux), Andy Gale (Throttlebottom), and Marcus DeLoach (French Ambassador).

The creative team will include Louisa Thompson (set), Carol Bailey (costumes), Justin Townsend (lighting), and James Bagwell (conductor).
