Casting has been announced for the musical The Scottsboro Boys, to run at San Diego's The Old Globe Theatre, to run April 29-June 10. Tony Award winner Susan Stroman will direct and choreograph the production, which will open officially on May 5.

With music and lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb, and a book by David Thompson, the show explores the infamous "Scottsboro" case of the 1930's when a group of African-American teenagers were unjustly accused of attacking two white women -- and the boys' attempts to prove their innocence.

The cast will feature Ron Holgate (The Interlocutor), Clifton Duncan (Haywood Patterson), Jared Joseph (Mr. Bones), JC Montgomery (Mr. Tambo), David Bazemore (Olen Montgomery), Nile Bullock (Eugene Williams), Christopher James Culberson (Andy Wright), Eric Jackson (Clarence Norris), Kendrick Jones (Willie Roberson), James T. Lane (Ozie Powell), Clifton Oliver (Charles Weems), Clinton Roane (Roy Wright) and C. Kelly Wright (The Lady), with Audrey Martells (The Lady Understudy) and Shavey Brown and Max Kumangai (Swings).

The creative team includes Jeff Whiting (Associate Director and Choreographer), Beowulf Boritt (Scenic Design), Toni-Leslie James (Costume Design), Ken Billington (Lighting Design), and Jon Weston (Sound Design).
