The leading roles of Aimee, her first husband, Robert Semple, and a later romantic interest, David Hutton have been cast, but possible future replacements are being sought. Other leading roles are available. The casting director is Eric Woodall of Tara Rubin Casting. Equity principal auditions will be held on July 11, 12, and 13. Equity chorus calls will be held on July 9 for singers and July 10 for dancers.
Gifford has been working on the project for more than a decade. In 2007, the show premiered at the Signature Theatre in Arlington, Virginia, under the title of "Saving Aimee." Tony nominee Carolee Carmello starred and recreated the role in a production at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre this past October.
