Directed by Kristin Hanggi with choreography by Kelly Devine, the production officially opens December 11 following previews that began November 20 in The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center. Performances are currently scheduled through January 12, 2019.

Like the Alicia Silverstone-led film, the musical concerns Cher (Cameron), a girl so optimistic she can’t see that her bungling attempts at playing Cupid disguise her own fashion-plated isolation.

Cameron is joined by Ephie Aardema as Tai, Sara Andreas as Heather, Gilbert L. Bailey II as Murray, Dave Thomas Brown as Josh, Will Connolly as Travis, Tiffany Engen (Swing), Katie Goffman (Swing), Danielle Marie Gonzalez as Lucy, Tessa Grady as Amber, Talya Groves as Summer, Chris Hoch as Mel/Mr. Hall/DMV Instructor, L'ogan J'ones as Max, Jeff Kuhr (Swing), Darius Jordan Lee as Sean, Justin Mortelliti as Christian, Megan Sikora as Miss Geist/Ms. Stoeger, Brett Thiele as Elton, and Zurin Villanueva as Dionne.

Cameron, whose credits also include Disney Channel's Descendants movies, won a 2018 Daytime Emmy Award for her work in Disney Channel's Liv and Maddie. She also appeared as Sophie in the Hollywood Bowl's 2017 presentation of Mamma Mia! She is set to make her London debut opposite Renée Fleming in The Light in the Piazza next year.
