The chorus also consisted of Jessica Bennett, Brenda MacDonald, Annie MacRitchie, Justin Nelson and Vanessa de Graaf.

Behind the scenes helping out were Toven MacLean, director, Nicole Barrett and Debby Chao on piano, Patrick Wu, lights, Caroline Hamilton, set and backdrop design, Karen Jones, stage painting. The stage crew consisted of Katrina Thomas, Emily MacMillan, Ben Jodrey, Adam Murphy and Erin MacMillan.
