Bucks County Playhouse, in New Hope, Pennsylvania, has announced the cast and creative team for its 2013 holiday show, Meet Me In St. Louis: A Live Radio Play. Based on Sally Benson's Kensington stories and the 1944 MGM motion picture Meet Me in St. Louis, this new production was adapted by Joe Landry from Hugh Wheeler's 1989 Tony-nominated book.
With direction by Gordon Greenberg and choreography by Lorin Latarro, the show features a cast of Broadway veterans including Garth Kravits (The Drowsy Chaperone), The Skivvies' Lauren Molina (Rock of Ages), Geoff Packard (Rock of Ages), Jay Russell (End of the Rainbow), and Chelsea Packard (Hands on a Hardbody). The production's creative team includes Nicole V. Moody (costumes), Ed Chapman (sound design), and Phil Reno (music direction).
"We are pleased to be ringing in the holidays with our newest New Hope tradition: A timeless holiday story in classic radio format," said BCP Producing Director Jed Bernstein. "This talented cast, all of whom have been on Broadway, and many on the BCP stage, will help bring our show magically to life."
Performances are scheduled to run from December 4-December 29. Additional casting will be announced in the coming weeks.
