Rounding out the ensemble were Callan Bergmann (Cinderella),Alexandra Frohlinger (Soul Doctor), Bre Jackson (Priscilla...), Collin Kelly-Sordelet (The Last Ship), Kristen Martin (Spiderman: Turn off the Dark), Paul HeeSang Miller (Mamma Mia), Heather Parcells (A Chorus Line), and Jason Michael Snow (The Book of Mormon).
Since its original Off-Broadway production in 2001, this award-winning musical has taken the world by storm and achieved a cult status in the vein of Rocky Horror and Hedwig and the Angry Inch, due in large to the successful award-winning Sundance film (also starring Cumming & Campbell). Inspired by the 1936 film of the same name, this raucous musical comedy takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the hysteria caused when clean-cut kids fall prey to marijuana, leading them on a hysterical downward spiral filled with evil jazz music, sex and violence.
