The cast includes WDVM's Mark Kraham, Todd Coyle, Clissy Funkhouser, Nina Geiger, Don Oehser, Laura First, Sam Jannotta, and Nelson Smith. The crew includes Foley Artist John McCarrick, doing the radio sound effects. The show is directed by Peggy McKowen, Associate Producing Director at Shepherd University. Click here to see cast bios.
