Dan Knechtges will direct a cast that also features Alison Luff, Quinn van Antwerp and Herndon Lackey with Russell Fischer, Robert Hager, Howard Kaye, Denis Lambert, Neal Mayer, Nora Menken, Spencer Moses, Chris Ramirez, Cliff Saunders, Jonathan Shew and Stephen Zinnato.

Glory Ride features music, lyrics and a book written by the father and daughter team Todd and Victoria Buchholz. The musical, according to press notes, "tells the true story of a heroic conspiracy to sneak children out of Fascist Italy on bicycles."

“We call it ‘Les Miz meets 'Ocean’s Eleven,’” stated Victoria Buchholz, who discovered this untold tale while traveling in Tuscany. “This fascinating story could rewrite how the world remembers the Italian Resistance during World War II."

Greg Jarrett is music director, and Tara Rubin serves as casting director.
