The Muny production of Elton John and Tim Rice's Aida is presented at the St. Louis, MO, venue August 8-14.

Directed by Matt Lenz, the limited engagement is choreographed by Jon Rua with music direction by Andrew Graham.

The cast is headed by Michelle Williams (Aida), Zak Resnick (Radames), Taylor Louderman (Amneris), Patrick Cassidy (Zoser), Ken Page (Amonasro), Lara Teeter (Pharoah) and Wonza Johnson (Mereb) with Karl Amundson, Ben Biggers, Olivia Cipolla, Mark Alexander Cruz, Lauren Csete, Rashada A. Dawan, Sean Green, Emily Greenwell, Phillip Johnson-Richardson, Sean Harrison Jones, Marina Kondo, Jose Luis Lopez, Yvette Lu, Brianna Mercado, Kameron Richardson, Saidu Sinlah, Daryl Tofa and Brinie Wallace. The company is joined by The Muny kid and teen youth ensembles and 2016 St. Louis Teen Talent Competition finalists.

The production has scenic design by Tim Mackabee, with costume design by Robin L. McGee, lighting design by Nathan W. Scheuer, sound design by John Shivers and David Patridge and video design by Matthew Young. Wig design is by John Metzner, and the production stage manager is Monica Dickhens.

Set in ancient Egypt, Aida, according to the Muny, is “an epic tale of an enslaved Nubian princess, Aida, a jealous Egyptian princess, Amneris, and the soldier they both love, Radames. As the story unfolds, forbidden love blossoms and a choice must be made between leading with a yearning heart or a responsible mind.”
