The Line-up

Rancy Neagan: Unabashedly Nasty

Cast: Sarah Bucher, Maria Gahan, Justine Hipsky, Kelsey Peters, Sam Schifrin, Heather Marie Vitale. Coach: Ceci De Robertis

Nox! Presents: Leakers Gon’ Leak
How many staffers does it take to find the leak? Nox! explores what happens when a leak takes on a life of its own.
Cast: Lura Barber, Annie Barry, Alex Beard, Sean Paul Ellis, Jenna Hall, John Heiser, Brianna Lux, Aaron Mosby, Matt Winterhalter, Chris Ulrich
