La Mirada Theatre Announces Cast and Crew for Miss Saigon

The classic love story brings Puccini’s Madame Butterfly to the modern world in a moving testament to the human spirit and a scathing indictment of the tragedies of war. In the turmoil of the Vietnam War, an American soldier and a Vietnamese girl fall in love, only to be separated during the fall of Saigon. Their struggles to find each other over the ensuing years ends in tragedy for her and a fighting chance for the child he never knew he had. Raw and uncompromising, Miss Saigon is an intensely personal story of the losses we suffer and the sacrifices we make in a world gone mad.

Foronda as the Engineer, Aidan Park as Thuy, Lawrence Cummings as John, Cassandra Murphy as Ellen, April Malina as Gigi and will also feature Ken Shim, Daniel Dawson, Jenn Aedo, Chris Holly, Jasmine Ejan, Nancy Lam, Bety Le, Ashley Matthews, Klarissa Mesee, Melinda Porto, Ryan Castellino, Patrick Lloyd, Patrick Lundquist, Daniel Ryan May, Kalen Sakima, Clay Stefanki, Estevan Valdes and Stefan Raulston.
