Class Reunion, according to press notes, "follows the journey of six high school friends from their final days at Jefferson High School in 1968, through their 20th, 30th and 40th reunions. Over time, their lives intertwine in interesting ways as old feelings, hilarious secrets and tough realities are brought to the forefront."

Other members of the creative team include musical director Julie Danielson and production stage manager Liz Muller.
