The production will star Jose Llana (Christian Bagets), Jeigh Madjus (Lola), Marc Delacruz (Hookaps), Catherine Ricafort (Cherish), Cosmo Clemens (Oo Oo), Enrico Rodriguez (Nana), Andrew Eisenman (Warden), and Nathan Ramos (Prison Guard).

The design team will feature Josh Zangen (set design), Sky Switser (costume design), Betsy Adams (lighting design), Jon Weston (sound design), and Rick Sorderlet (fight direction).
