Photo Flash: Meet the Cast of Pioneer Theatre's SOMETHING'S AFOOT

Pioneer Theatre Company presents the musical whodunit Something's Afoot, September 20 through October 5, 2013, at Simmons Pioneer Memorial Theatre. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast below!

Combine Agatha Christie's most ingenious murder mystery plot with a deliriously dizzy musical score and what do you get? A delightful musical where the bodies pile up between songs and the young lovers don't know whether to kiss or run for cover.

"I saw Something's Afoot years ago, and was completely charmed by its refreshing and original score and story," says PTC Artistic Director Karen Azenberg. "I've wanted to direct it ever since. When I came on board in 2012, I knew it was a piece that Salt Lake City audiences would love as much as I do."

The ensemble Equity cast is comprised of Paul Castree as Flint, Laura Hall as Hope Langdon, James Judy as Colonel Gillweather, Kate Marilley as Lettie, Joseph Medeirosas Nigel Rancour, Will Ray as Geoffrey, Tia Speros as Miss Tweed and REBECCA WATSONas Lady Grace Manley-Prowe.
