Reim Theatre in Kirkwood, May 28 - June 27. Direction and musical staging are by Michael Hamilton, with choreography by Dana Lewis and musical direction by Lisa Campbell-Albert.

The cast will also feature Richard Pruitt as Pap Finn, David Schmittou, Ben Nordstrom, and Zoe Vonder Haar.

The creative team will include scenic designer James Wolk, costume designer Lou Bird, lighting designer Matthew McCarthy, and orchestral designer Stuart M. Elmore.
