The creative team behind the popular musical consists of Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar (The Wedding Singer, Elf the Musical) and Chad Beguelin (Aladdin), who are the musical’s composer and lyricist, respectively. Tony Award winner Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone) and Beguelin have also written the book based on Jack Vierel’s original concept.

The upcoming film will be produced by Bill Damaschke (Shrek the Musical) and Dori Berinstein (One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest). Nicholaw, Sklar, Beguelin and Martin will also be joining Murphy for the film’s creative production.
