The cast will also feature Sarah Steele, Dael Orlandersmith, and Greg Keller, with understudies Raquel Chavez and Gregory Connors rounding out the company.

The production will feature scenic design by Louisa Thompson, costume design by Enver Chakartash, lighting design by Isabella Byrd, and sound design by Palmer Hefferan. Ashley-Rose Galligan will be production stage manager, with Eric Nolan Mattingly as assistant stage manager. Casting is by Taylor Williams, with Wagner Johnson Productions' Zachary Baer serving as general manager.
