Cook as Cheryl Cook, Autumn Guzzardi as Lisa Luder, and Michael Starr as Billy Christianson. Eric Ankrim, Trina Mills, Taylor Niemeyer, James Tabeek, Leigh Wakeford, and Louis Wililams Jr. complete the ensemble.

The creative team includes Donyale Werle (scenic design), Amy Clark (costume design), Jason Lyons (lighting design), Christopher Walker (sound design) and Mary Pyanowski Jones (hair and makeup design).
