The production is directed by Paper Mill producing artistic director Mark S. Hoebee with choreography by Denis Jones.
The cast features Tony nominee Brenda Braxton as Muzzy van Hossmere, Burke Moses as Trevor Graydon III, Lenora Nemetz as Mrs. Meers, Laurie Veldheer as Millie Dilmount and Jeff Kready as Jimmy Smith.
The company also includes Ashley Kate Adams as Miss Dorothy Brown, Billy Bustamante as Bun Foo, James Seol as Ching Ho and Jessica Sheridan as Miss Flannery.
