Shakespeare Theatre Company has announced casting for its world premiere of David Ives' The Heir Apparent, adapted from Jean-François Regnard's 1708 comedic masterpiece. Michael Kahn will direct the production, which will run September 6-October 23.

The farcical play involves a young couple whose future happiness is threatened by a miserly uncle, and the resourceful servant who may be able to save the day using his quick wit and powers of disguise.

The cast will feature Carson Elrod (Crispin), Kelly Hutchinson as Lisette, Floyd King (Geronte), Clark Middleton as Scruple, Nancy Robinette (Madame Argante), Meg Chambers Steedle (Isabelle), and Andrew Veenstra (Eraste).

The design team will include scenic designer Alexander Dodge, lighting designer Phillip Rosenberg, costume designer Murell Horton, and composer Adam Wernick.
