Cain Park’s production of “Sondheim on Sondheim” is directed by Joanna May Cullinan, with musical direction by Jordan Cooper and choreography by Monica Olejko.

Its cast will include Mario Clopton-Zymler, Aimee Collier, Andrea de la Fuente, Trey Gilpin, Frank Ivancic, Kate Klika, Connor Stout and Nicole Sumlin. Other members of the company will include Cameron Olin, Adam Rawlings, Danny Simpson and Amanda Tidwell.

Tickets for the Aug. 4 preview party are $25. For all other shows, tickets are $32 in advance and $34 the day of the show. Tickets can be purchased at etix.com or by calling the Cain Park box office at 216-371-3000.
