The Alliance cast was led by Andrew Keenan-Bolger (Ever After) as Jesse Tuck and Tony nominee Terrence Mann (Pippin) as Man in the Yellow Suit, alongside Carolee Carmello (Finding Neverland), and Michael Park (How to Succeed…), with 10-year-old Sarah Charles Lewis took on the role of Winnie Foster.
