Berkshire Theatre Group has announced casting for its upcoming production of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II’s Pipe Dream. Following the loners and dreamers of Cannery Row, the musical will play the Unicorn Theatre in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, July 26–August 31.

Directed by Kat Yen, the cast will feature Noa Luz Barenblat as Suzy; Mike Cefalo as George; Wes D’Alelio as Pancho, Sonny Boy, and Dr. Dormody; Elijah Dawson as Hazel; Pierre Jean Gonzalez as Joe; Joe Joseph as Doc; Jackson Mattek as Eddie and Jim; Benj Mirman as Ray; Sharone Sayegh as Fauna; Lael Van Keuren as Emma and Millicent; Hennessy Winkler as Mac; and Sumi Yu as Agnes.

Based on John Steinbeck’s novels Cannery Row and Sweet Thursday, Pipe Dream features music by Rodgers and a book and lyrics by Hammerstein II. Set against the backdrop of the Bear Flag Café, the musical follows Suzy, a homeless girl, welcomed by Fauna, the compassionate madam of the establishment. Amidst an eclectic group of characters, Suzy’s encounter with Doc, a carefree marine biologist, sparks a tender and star-crossed romance.

The original Broadway production was nominated for nine 1956 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

The upcoming production will also have choreography by Isadora Wolfe, music direction by Jacob Kerzner, orchestrations by Ross Patterson and Jacob Kerzner, scenic design by Jimmy Stubbs, costume design by Kathleen Doyle, lighting design by Evan Anderson, sound design by Uptownworks, production stage management by Jason Weixelman, assistant stage management by Mickey Acton, and casting by Tara Rubin Casting.
