Brandie Sylfae "Trish"

John Bruner "Dick Princess"
John Bruner sucks at writing bios. And if we let him write his, that’s what it would say. Fortunately he is a lot better at acting than he is at bragging about himself. He does a lot of Shakespeare. Like a lot. Whiskey Dixie is a far cry from Shakespeare, but we’ve reassured John that eventually he will get used to his dance belt, which is a lot tighter than the cowboy hat he is used to. John also plays bass and guitar in Brothers Hallowed Junction and has a perfectly chiseled jaw-line.
Dennis Fitzpatrick "Roger"
Over the course of more than 40 years as an actor and director, Dennis has worked and studied in 10 states and England. He performed in repertory for years, and founded theater groups in partnership with broadway producers. These days he is focused on film. Dennis is also a master-level craftsman, and a generous fount of wisdom who is somehow still mystified by Brussels sprouts. Dennis didn’t want a snarky bio. Let’s see if this one flies. www.DennisFitz.com
Tyler Shilstone "Jerry"
Tyler wanted to use this space to thank his girlfriend, Melina for support. Isn’t that sweet? Tyler is a sweet guy who also happens to be one talented motherfucker who has been at this acting thing for 20 years. He’s been all over LA, San Francisco and has a resume half a mile long. When he’s not onstage making us hope we don’t piss our pants, Tyler works at a vegan bakery and shreds on guitar. We may start calling the play Whiskey Dixie & The Big Wet Tyler Shilstone, because he’s is a superstar.

She stole the show this July at the Spunks Not Dead premiere and has logged hundreds of hours on some of the biggest sets in town (17 episodes of Grimm, 13 episodes of The Librarians).
