Grace Rambo, Lorna Street Dopson, Maddie Tinsley, Logan Barbee, John Bogan, Caroline Paxton, London Todd, Stephen Scarlato, Camille Gladney Schmoutz, Rick Stovall, Rachel Havird, Erik Champney, Kate Gilbert, Tony Hobson, Jeff Baker, and Courtney Loggins.

In addition to Hooper, the creative team includes Regina Price,stage manager, David White, lighting designer, Chris Gonzales, set designer, Su Stella, scenic artist, Phil Stewart, sound, and Peggy San Pedro, costumer.
