Jay Klaitz (Lend Me a Tenor, High Fidelity), Paul Whitty (Once, The Full Monty), and Sawyer Nunes (Matilda, Finding Neverland) will play Juggernaut band members, along with a fifth and final actor yet to be announced.

Gettin’ The Band Back Together will begin July 19 at the Belasco Theatre, where it will open officially August 13. The production is directed by Tony Award winner John Rando and choreographed by Chris Bailey.

Also announced for the principal cast are Brandon Williams (Blood Brothers) as Tygen, Mitch's high school arch nemesis; and Tamika Lawrence (Come From Away, Beautiful) as police officer Roxy.

The musical features a book by Ken Davenport (who is also producing) and the performance group Grundleshotz, who helped develop the show through a series of improv rehearsals. Mark Allen penned the score, and Sarah Saltzberg (a member of Grundleshotz) provided additional material.

The creative team also includes Derek McLane (scenic design), Emily Rebholz (costume), Ken Billington (lighting design), and John Shivers (sound design).

Gettin’ The Band Back Together had its world premiere in 2013 at George Street Playhouse, also directed by Rando.
