When she isn’t treading the boards, you can find her cheering on her two favorite teams – the Oklahoma Sooners and the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Bryan is excited to get tipsy in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. This will be Bryan’s Shakespearian debut, unless however, you count a middle school production of the same play. He was most recently seen on stage as Brad in The Rocky Horror Show and Josh in If/Then both with Circle Players. Bryan moved to Nashville over a year ago from Florida where he was performing and recording for Walt Disney World, PerformerStuff.com, and Central Florida Community Arts. An Alabama native, he is a graduate of the University of Mobile where he studied voice and musical theater. While not on stage, he attempts to run or workout, then cancelling it out with some kind of cheese-covered food. You can follow him on Instagram and Twitter: @broyals.
