42nd Street Moon has announced casting for the workshop production of Shadows of Pompeii, a new musical with a new score by Tony-nominated composer Keith Herrmann. Written by R.C. Staab, the production will play the Eureka Theatre, April 16-26. Dianna Shuster will direct, with music direction by Mark Hanson.

Set in the seaside village of Pompeii in AD 79, the show tells the story of a young female painter who seeks to express her artistry despite restrictions of the Rome Empire, while disaster looms from Mt. Vesuvius.

The cast will include Sara Aili, Russ Lorenson, Andrew Willis-Woodward, Carrie Madsen, Carmichael Blankenship, Sean Patrick Murtagh, Samantha Bartholomew, Steve Vaught, and Steve Budd.
