Come Rain Or Come Shine will again be directed by Allen MacInnis and will star original cast members Louise Rose, Sylvie Peron and Colleen Winton. Denis Simpson rounds out the cast. Winton is also the choreographer, and Rose returns on the piano as well. James Young will provide accompaniment on bass, with Gordon Clements on sax and clarinet.
