Theatre Under the Stars has announced the cast for its world premiere of The Ugly Xmas Sweater Musical. The production will play the Houston, Texas venue November 28-December 24.
The cast features Julia Krohn as Cheryl, Brooke Wilson as Olga, Kevin Cooney as Charlie, Nicolas Garza as Doug/Niles, and Kiara Caridad as Kelli. Rounding out the company are understudies Trey Lewis and Sophia Clarke.
The Ugly Xmas Sweater Musical is co-written by TUTS Artistic Director Dan Knechtges (Lysistrata Jones) and Megan Larche Dominick. Knechtges serves as director and choreographer, as well. The musical takes place at a large company's annual holiday party, with none of the attendees aware the event is on the brink of disaster.
The creative team includes music arranger Michael Holland, musical director Ben Childress, lighting designer Hudson Davis, costume designer Colleen Grady, sound designer Andrew Harper, hair and makeup designer Jayson Kolbicz, and production stage manager Stephanie Britton. Casting is by TUTS Artistic Line Producer Laura Nan Peete.
