Will Mobley is also an actor with American Players Theatre (APT).The show features 42 actors, with 22 under the age of 18.

It opens up with a very festive…It’s brighter; there’s a lot more humor in the show, and a sense of community and family. We wanted to make it a very accessible show for our younger audience and their families.”
They would not reveal who the narrator in this adaption is, “ours is a very special character, he’s not just a narrator.”
