The list of names will look familiar to anyone who's followed the company's work in recent seasons: Ryan Bourque, Walter Briggs, Tien Doman, Maggie Fullilove-Nugent, Lindsey Gavel, Matt Kahler, Justine Palmisano, Michael Smallwood and Zeke Sulkes climb on board.

The Hypocrites open their 16th season with The Fall of the House of Usher, adapted and directed by Graney and starring Kays, Doman and Christine Stulik, August 15–September 23 at the.
