Many of the cast members either work with individuals with special needs, or have a family member with special needs, so the play has become personal to them.
The cast stars Kevin Roach (as Arnold Wiggins), Jamie Ball (Norman Bulanski), Malcolm Casey (Lucien P. Smith), John Lawson (Barry Klemper), Nick Bellmyer (Jack), Rachel Smith (Sheila), Bob Tyson (Mr. Klemper), David Brabbs (Mr. Hedges, Mr. Corbin and Sen Clarke) and Jackie Marshall (Mrs. Fremus, Mrs. Warren and Clara).
