The cast will feature seniors Brianna Bond as Rosalind and Zachary Fitzgibbons as Orlando.
The lead actors will be backed up by an ensemble of University students, including Colton Adams, Josh Alter, Will Ballard, Victoria Blackmon, Martin Cicco Jr., Thomas Deen IV, Laykan Dowdy, Aaron Esters, Payton-Brooke Fulford, Bryant Heatherly, Hannah Hicks, Colton Holcombe, Brady King, Nicole Lusk, Maxwell McCormick, Raven McShan, Abigail St. John, Marcia Vega, Blake Waters and Alexandra Williams.
