The cast of 50 Shades! includes David Andino (The Buddy Holly Story), Kaitlyn Frotton (Scab), Chris Grace ("That Awkward Moment"), Adam Hyndman ("The Sing Off"), Tim Murray ("White House Down"), Amber Petty (voice of Sirius/XM's Radio Margaritaville), Casey Rogers (Catch Me If You Can), Alec Varcas (Spamalot), Ashley Ward (Baby Wants Candy) and Chloe Williamson (Save The Date). The show is billed as follows: "50 Shades! the Musical - The Original Parody opens with a trio of girlfriends setting aside staid book club fare in favor of a sexier sort of page-turner. Interest piqued, they devour the novel while the notorious characters', Anastasia and Christian, delicious affair comes to life before their eyes. The musical is an uproarious rollercoaster ride through this unlikely bestseller. The show features a sassy original score with musical influences ranging from traditional musical theater to R&B to Gilbert and Sullivan, including the provocative 'I Don’t Make Love...' and 'There's a Hole Inside of Me.'"
