Seeking the following roles:
Brom Bones – 18-25 – Bari-Tenor – Strapping young local hero. Larger than life both physically and emotionally. Good natured but childish. Rowdy and overly confident in his physical abilities. Not well educated but street smart. Loves Katrina but loves his freedom more.
Hans Van Ripper: 35-60. Baritone – Local farmer. Strong and wise but a man of few words. Doesn’t take to strangers but loves to scare them with spooky tales of the Hollow. Lost his wife many years ago and he still nurses a broken heart
Henry: 18-25 – Tenor – Best friend of Brom. He runs his family tavern and is sweet, kind and full of life.
