“The score of The 12, while totally original, is my open love letter to many of the great genres in the history of classic rock 'n' roll, and can only be tackled by powerful, authentic voices,” said composer Berg in an earlier statement. “We are thrilled with the cast and creative team we have assembled and cannot wait to bring this unique musical to Denver.”

The creative team also includes music director Michael Mancini, music supervisor Wendy Bobbitt Cavett, scenic designer John Iacovelli, costume designer Denitsa Bliznakova, lighting designer Lap Chi Chu and sound designer Zach Williamson.
