(L-R) Lauren Gemelli, Dan Bob Higgins, Michael Indeglio, Megan Koumis, and Zoie Morris.

Westport, N.Y. – The Depot Theatre is pleased to announce the cast for THE WORLD GOES ‘ROUND, the first of the theatre’s 2019 season main stage lineup.

THE WORLD GOES ‘ROUND is a clever collage of songs from CABARET, CHICAGO and more by the Tony Award-winning team of John Kander and Fred Ebb.

The nonstop hit-parade features five individuals singing unforgettable gems, including “Mr. Cellophane,” “Maybe This Time,” “Cabaret” and “New York, New York,” seamlessly interwoven into a passionate, harmonious, up-tempo evening of musical theatre.

“We’ve cast the best of the best for this show, with five extremely talented performers, one of whom has performed some of this show’s material on the national tour of Chicago,” said Depot Theatre Producing Artistic Director Kenney Green. “Every one of these artists is a seasoned veteran, and they are all making their Depot debut. Our audiences are in for a real treat!” 

Lauren Gemelli’s New York City experience includes City Opera’s CANDIDE, national tours of THE DROWSY CHAPERONE, CHICAGO: THE MUSICAL, 42nd STREET, and a long list of regional theatre roles at Arena Stage, Trinity Rep Theatre by the Sea, and Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston.

Dan Bob Higgins’s previous credits include: WEST SIDE STORY tour, ELF THE MUSICAL tour, CHASING RAINBOWS: THE ROAD TO OZ (world premier), and other productions at MSMT, Ogunquit Playhouse, Goodspeed Opera House, and Beef and Boards Dinner Theatre.

Michael Indeglio’s resume features tours of TITANIC, MAME, and FOREVER PLAID, with favorite regional roles as Jon in TICK TICK…BOOM, Jaime in THE LAST FIVE YEARS, Seymour in LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, and IN MY BODY.  He is also a current member of the Jersey Tenors. 

Megan Koumis was last seen in the Off-Broadway show MADE IN AMERICA at The Public Theatre in New York City. Her regional credits include: EVITA, JEKYLL AND HYDE, GODSPELL, JOSEPH AND THE TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT, XANADU, and GUYS AND DOLLS. Television credits include: THE DEUCE, on HBO and a commercial for RealSleep by RealSimple.

Zoie Morris is originally from Norfolk, VA. Her Broadway/national tour credits include: RAGTIME and THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL (national tour). Off-Broadway credits include: HARLEM SONG RADIO CITY CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR. Favorite regional theatre credits include: ONCE ON THIS ISLAND, CAMELOT, SMOKEY JOE’S CAFE, RAGTIME, and THE WIZ. Zoie has been filming THE GOOD FIGHT TV series for the past 2 years.

“I selected this production in part because it features some of the greatest collective work from bigger Kander and Ebb productions that the Depot doesn’t have the capacity to produce individually,” said Green. “THE WORLD GOES ‘ROUND packages the best of their songbook into a stunning musical production that our audiences will love.”

THE WORLD GOES ‘ROUND is sponsored by The Galley Restaurant and Bar at Westport Marina. Performances run June 29-July 14, with a $20 preview on June 28.
