Evonnee Bentley-Holder, Natalia Brown, Ryan Carter, Hannah Fairclough, Christopher Gopaul, Daniel Haswell, Naomi Katiyo, Akmed Junior Khemalai, Holly Liburd, Darnell Mathew-James, Simeon Montague, Posi Morakinyo, Sadie-Jean Shirley, Michael James Stewart, Toyan Thomas-Browne, Dylan Turner and Kevin Yates complete the cast.

Ain't Too Proud reunites Tony and Olivier Award winning choreographer Sergio Trujilio with two-time Tony Award winning director Des McAnuff, whose previous collaborations include the Tony Award winning hit show Jersey Boys.
