In addition to Buntrock (A Little Night Music, Beauty and the Beast) and Voytko (Next to Normal, The Pirate Queen), the cast will include Liz Baltes (A Minister's Wife), Taryn Darr (Catch Me If You Can), Jamie Jackson (The 39 Steps) and Brian Charles Rooney (Threepenny Opera).
According to the authors, "It's 1961 and Dr. Dick Cuttingham (Buntrock) will go to any lengths to further science — even Murder! When his fiancée, Hedy (Voytko), is accidentally decapitated, Dick keeps her head alive in a baking pan. Add a Monster in the Closet, a one-armed lab assistant, and a model with 'a body to die for,' and you have the perfect formula for a 3-D extravaganza!"
The Brain That Wouldn't Die! In 3-D!!! will have lighting design by Brian Tovar, scenic by Clifton Chadick and costume design by David Withrow. Annbritt DuChateau will serve as music director.
