Blind dates don’t often go very well, this is more than true when it comes to Aaron and Casey, two singletons set up by Casey's sister and brother-in-law. With a cast of wacky characters that only Casey, Aaron and the audience can see, disaster ensues from the moment the lights go off and the band starts to play. Could the two of them ever work out? Between religious disagreements to commitment issues, it seems as though this couple will never make it, but love works in mysterious ways. Come see First Date to find out if Aaron and Casey have a chance at a second date!

"First Date" contains mature language, and may not be suitable for younger audience members.

Last night I went to see this show and was blown away by the talented performers I saw. Tatyana Austrie you started the night with a mind blowing set, I’m still not over it and need the first copy of your album when you drop it. Jack and David you both had me in absolute stitches, great performances, Simme your performance as Casey was great and your voice was angelic. Brent I don’t even know what to say your solo was so moving. Grace, Ben and Alex as inner voices I have no words, I was laughing obnoxiously. If I’ve missed anyone I’m sorry but I cannot say enough how talented you young performers are. Of course I need to give a shout-out to my baby Thalia Ranjbar. You killed it as grandma Ida - you shine on stage!!!! You looked so happy and alive and I’m so proud of you. I’m so happy you’ve met such wonderful people and they’ve brought such happiness to your life and on a selfish note I’m glad I got to spend time with them as well! 😊💕💕

Last on our list for cast is Josh Patrick. Josh describes the show by saying “it’s a date.” Josh’s ideal first date would start with him and his date rolling down UC hill, include a dip in the Thames to wash off all the goose poop, and end hopefully, in bed with some snacks (no, not with his date, get your mind out of the gutter. Josh is just a very tired boi who needs to sleep...and snack). If Josh could go on this date with anyone, he would choose Steve Buscemi because he’s the hottest man since....well forever. #Buscemicoatedingoosepoop #FirstDate #kingsplayers #datemekp #fallingforkp #kpiseternal #lndont #Igotokings

Now we have Jack Sizeland who is playing Casey's father. When asked to describe the show in three words, Jack said "I'm in it." Also, Jack chose to describe his character as "Call me Daddy." Yes, with a capital "D" on Daddy. Jack's ideal first date is August 6, 1997 and Jack is in love with Squidward Tentacles. #meh #FirstDate #kingsplayers #datemekp #fallingforkp #kpiseternal #lndont #Igotokings

Next up we have Alex Bogaert who is playing a hottie bad boy! Alex describes the show as "Pfffft, ya right" and describes his character as "Yooo suuuuuuh duuuuuuude." Alex's ideal date will "start with me in the shower and end with me in the shower. Whatever happens in between happens yo." Finally, Alex's celebrity crush is Stephen Bogaert! #stephenbogaertisIT #FirstDate #kingsplayers #datemekp #fallingforkp #kpiseternal #lndont #Igotokings

Next is Tatyana Austrie who showcases her amazing voice by playing the Lounge Singer in the show! She describes her character as a "restaurant owner extraordinaire." In the show Tatyana sings to Casey and Aaron on their first date but if Tatyana could choose anyone to go on a first date with in real life, she would choose Jeremy Jordan and they would "go to a jazz club and drink much wine." #newsiejazzandwine #FirstDate #kingsplayers #datemekp #fallingforkp #kpiseternal #lndont #Igotokings

Last on our list for today is Thalia Ranjbar, who plays Grandma Ida! Thalia wants you to know that Grandma Ida is best described as "over the top!" She would love to go on a first date with Corey Cott to watch the opening night of a broadway show. #Coreycottisoverthetop #FirstDate #kingsplayers #datemekp #fallingforkp #kpiseternal #lndont #Igotokings

Next up is Grace Campbell who plays Lauren! Grace described the show by saying "Brent is Flawless," which is probably the best way to describe the show. Grace's dream first date is to have Zac Efron take her on a picnic in the Scottish Highlands, you know, because the most casual of first dates include a cross-Atlantic flight to a different continent! #kploveszefron #FirstDate #kingsplayers #datemekp #fallingforkp #kpiseternal #lndont #Igotokings

We'll continue our #meetthecast today with Simmie Patoka. Simmie plays Casey in the show, who she describes as "artsy, Indie, [and] pretty hot." Her celebrity crush is her dog and unlike Casey, Simmie's idea of a perfect first date is "A cute tea date followed by a walk in nature... or axe throwing." #dogscantbreakupwithyou #FirstDate #kingsplayers #datemekp #fallingforkp #kpiseternal #lndont #Igotokings

Meet Teri Michalargias! She plays a myriad of characters, like Google, Blaze, The Therapist and "Female with Megaphone." Teri describes the show as being "Awkward, hilarious, and relatable." We asked her who her celebrity crush is and she said, "I don't know....Obama?" So someone tell Obama that Teri would love to go to dinner and then find a spot to stargaze for their first date!. #ThanksObama #FirstDate #kingsplayers #datemekp #fallingforkp #kpiseternal #lndont #Igotokings

Day three of Meet The Cast brings us Hayley Tubrett who plays Allison. Hayley describes the show as "Quirky, ridiculous, [and] witty," and says that if she could go on a first date with Chris Pine (#pinenut) her dream would be to go to the Cheese Boutique in Toronto and have him buy her as much cheese as she wants! #FirstDate #kingsplayers #datemekp #fallingforkp #kpiseternal #lndont #Igotokings

Next we have David Carlson who plays “Available” The Waiter. David described his character by saying, “Worst Waiter Ever.” We asked David to describe his perfect first date and this is what he said, “I dont know (make something up) I like dinner somewhere fancy but not too fancy. Then something exciting after but not like crazy exciting then I smooch on the front porch... ouh maybe rain thats romantic right?” But you see that folks, he asked me to make something up, so I think his new perfect first date is making you watch him do some improv in his basement and then taking you to a screening of the Muppet Movie that he set up just for the two of you. If David could choose a celebrity to take on either of these dates, he’d choose Ariana Grande (I hope you like improv and muppets Ariana). #muppetsandimprov #FirstDate #kingsplayers #datemekp #fallingforkp #kpiseternal #lndont #Igotokings

On our roster for today we’re starting with Brent Miller who plays Aaron! We asked Brent to describe the show in three words and he just said “I love pickles.” Which is strange because Brent can’t stand pickles. Brent would like you to know that his celebrity crush is Anne Hathaway and his idea of a perfect first date is “grabbing food at a nice, casual restaurant.” #picklelove #FirstDate #kingsplayers #datemekp #fallingforkp #kpiseternal #lndont #Igotokings

I don't know... it seems like Brent looooooves pickles

Our next cast member is Colleen Hayman who plays Aaron's Mom. Colleen, who's role is very fitting because she's also our cast mom this year, described the show as "funny, relatable and unexpected." Colleen's celebrity crush is Channing Tatum and if she could go on a First Date with him she would like to do "something simple and casual." She would love to just grab a coffee and wander around a cool part of the city because it's the best way to get to know someone without too much pressure! #castmom #FirstDate #kingsplayers #datemekp #fallingforkp #kpiseternal #lndont #Igotokings

Well, the time has come, let's meet the cast of First Date! This year we asked a few weird questions for your entertainment, including what their ideal first date would be. Maybe Casey and Aaron should have taken one of these suggestions instead! First up we have Ben Jones. Ben plays a few characters including Gabe, Aaron's Future Son and Casey's British Ex Boyfriend. When asked to describe Gabe in three words, he said "Get's ass, apparently." Ben's ideal first date is drinks at a quiet pub and his celebrity crush is Emilia Clarke (but I mean who's isn't, am I right?) #EmilianotAmelia #FirstDate #kingsplayers #datemekp #fallingforkp #kpiseternal #lndont #Igotokings
