Robert Brock is - Thurston Wheelis, Elmer Watkins, Bertha Bumiller, the voice of Yippy, Leonard Childers, R.R. Snavely, Sheriff Givens, Hank Bumiller, and Rev. Spikes. His eulogy of Judge Buckner, a delivery of a string of meaningless cliches, but delivered with the passion and rhythms of a Southern preacher making an altar call, is the highlight of the second act.

Randy Burns is - Arles Struvie, Didi Snavely, Harold Dean Lattimer, Petey Fisk, Jody Bumiller, Stanley Bumiller, Charlotte Bumiller, Chad Harford, Phinas Bly and Vera Carp. He does an especially funny Didi Snavely.

The play is directed by Brock. Jeremy Cloyd is the production manager.Natisha Sigurbjartsson is stage manager, Levi Dettling is lighting operator, Sharon Archey and Thomas Alvey are production assistants, and Caitlin Corder is House manager.
