Twenty-five students and community members form the cast, almost all playing more than one role across the four nights of the show. Swanson directs an additional 22 students and community performers in the live orchestra, which will accompany each performance in Amherst's Orr Rink.

“This musical is being organized as a grassroots community event,” Paul says. “To have it staged in Athletics allows a department not traditionally involved in theater to be a part of the process, and that’s awesome.”
