Photos: First Look At Cape Rep Theatre's MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG

Merrily We Roll Along makes it's Cape Cod premiere at Cape Rep Theatre. Following three best friends over the 20-year span of their artistic careers, Sondheim's brilliant score includes, "Not a Day Goes By," "Old Friends" and "Good Thing Going." As the trio of creatives, Cape Rep favorites Jared Hagan, Trish LaRose and Adam Berry will bring their real-life friendship to the stage, and the drive and wit of the story to life.

Merrily We Roll Along is directed by Cape Rep's Associate Artistic Director, Maura Hanlon, with Musical Direction by Peter Hodgson of last season's Billy Elliot the Musical and Boundless. Newcomer Andrew Licout designs the set with costumes by Robin McLaughlin, lighting by Susan Nicholson and projections by Lisa Renkel. Mary Fritz is in charge of properties and Kate Gulden is the stage manager.

The cast features Adam Berry as composer Franklin Shepard, Jared Hagan as his writing partner Charley Kringas and Trish LaRose as novelist Mary Flynn, the three best friends of the story. They are joined by Kelly Plescia, making her Cape Rep debut as Beth, Rachel O'Malley, last seen at Cape Rep in the title role of Evita, as Broadway star Gussie Carnegie, and Ben Berry, also making his Cape Rep debut, as producer Joe Josephson. The ensemble is a wonderful mix of Cape Rep artists and newcomers including Jess Andra (Men on Boats, A New Brain), Shelby Anne Davis, Emma Fitzpatrick, Jeffrey Kelly (Hairspray), Julien Lajoie (Billy Elliot), Meghan Magrath (Failure: A Love Story, Funny Girl), Craig McKerley, Noah Pelty, and Anthony Teixeira (Evita, The Light in the Piazza).
