The cast features Fred Applegate (The Producers) as Rich, Samantha Bruce (The Fantasticks) as Angela, Matt Dengler (The Visit) as Orphan, and Nick Wyman (The Phantom of the Opera) as Potemkin, with Joy Del Valle, Gabriella Mack, Noah Mogaka, and Rafael Rodriguez as the Revelers.

Broadway vets Applegate and Wyman first performed these same roles opposite each other 47 years ago in a New Jersey stock production of Celebration.

This new version of Celebration was first staged in 2016 by the New Line Theatre in St. Louis. The musical, set on a deserted city street in winter, spotlights a group of ragged revelers who perform a modern version of the ancient ritual battle between Winter and Summer, the Young and the Old.

Casting is by Carol Hanzel.
