More 2010 casting news: Sean Cullen, Paul Nolan, Mike Shara, Sophia Walker all return

The Stratford Shakespeare Festival announced more 2010 casting in a press release today.

Sean Cullen (above left) will return to play Smee in Peter Pan, opposite Michael Therriealut. The two starred together in the Toronto run of The Producers five years ago. Joining the cast as little Michael Darling is Stacie Steadman (above, right). Mr. Cullen has also been cast as Vinnie the M.C. in King of Thieves at the Studio Theatre.
Paul Nolan (above left), has been cast as Orlando in As You Like It, with Mike Shara (above right) as Oliver.
Sophia Walker (above left) now has the role of Julia in The Two Gentlemen of Verona; Nikki M. James was to play that part but recently pulled out of the 2010 season for unstated reasons. Mike Jackson (above right) will return to play Billl Calhoun in Kiss Me, Kate.

Marti Maraden's production of The Winter's Tale will also include performances by Dan Chameroy, Sean Arbuckle and Ian Lake (above right, middle, and left, respectively).

And Richard Ouzounian's source appears to be a good one; earlier today he reported that Jewelle Blackman (above left) and Nathalie Nadon (above right) would be appearing in Jacques Brel, which the press release has now confirmed.
