The cast features Lydie Koffi as Amahl, Maggie Bristol as Amahl's Mother, Ben Rikeman as King Kaspar, Mitchell Auger as King Melchior, Chris Sudderth as King Balthazar, and Elizabeth Parmer as the Page. The chorus of shepherds and shepherdesses is comprised of Piedmont students and other local singers.
