The original cast of Carney daughters remain, as well as Charles Dale, Fionnula Flanagan, Michael Quinton McArthur, Glenn Spears and more.
Dale, Delaney, Keeley, and Speers are appearing with the permission of Actors’ Equity Association.
In total, the cast is made up of 35 performers: 17 main adults, 10 covers, four children, and four babies on rotation. Many members of the original cast came over with the production from London.
In November, “Ferryman” announced a 20-week extension through July 7, 2109.
