Scott); Tom Schmid (Pasadena Playhouse's I Do! I Do! and Broadway's Annie Get Your Gun) as William Marshall; Marc Singer (The Taming of the Shrew – LADCC Award) as Oscar Hubbard; Rachel Sondag as Alexandra Giddens (Serendipity Theatre Company's girl, 20); and Steve Vinovich (original Broadway company of Lost in Yonkers) as Benjamin Hubbard."
