Photo Flash: Meet the Cast of Arkansas Rep's BECAUSE OF WINN DIXIE, Playing thru Jan 5

BECAUSE OF WINN DIXIE, with a book and lyrics by Nell Benjamin and music by Duncan Sheik, and based on the popular 2000 novel by Kate DeCamillo, is playing in its world premiere this winter at Arkansas Repertory Theatre, with AVENUE Q's John Tartaglia at the helm. The production is set to run now through January 5, 2013. Scroll down for a photos of the cast below!

BECAUSE OF WINN DIXIE tells the story of lonely young girl who moves to Florida with her father. She goes into the Winn-Dixie supermarket and comes out with a large stray dog who helps her rekindle an almost lost relationship with her father.

Taran and Cally, two Irish Wolfhounds, have been cast in the title role of "Winn-Dixie," trained by Broadway's foremost animal trainer, Bill Berloni. This will be the first pre-Broadway musical starring a live dog as the central character.
