The score demands much from both the actors and the orchestra,
and he looks forward to navigating the music with a great team.
He is excited to piano-conduct the orchestra as well.

Performed as a dessert cabaret, this one night show is a collage of new musical theater songs put together by Brandon Ivie, Orlando Morales, and Casey Craig. Bryan has a thrilling duet as the son of a baseball mom which changes keys and time signatures more than once each page!

We hope this email finds you all well. Bryan continues to enjoy
theatrical pursuits and is in The Wiz with Village Theatre's
Summerstock program. The Wiz opens Saturday, August 1st and runs
through Sunday, August 9th. There is at least one show every day
except Monday and Tuesday. We hear rumors of red hair, a faux-hawk,
assorted leather garments, and green highlights.....all in different
scenes, of course. As always, Village Summerstock shows are of
professional quality and well worth the $12-14 ticket price. The box
office phone number is (425)392-2202 or more information is online at
The second weekend will probably sell-out, so we
advise getting tickets in advance.
Second Story Rep - You're a Good Man Charlie Brown
Bryan performs in 3 shows with Second Story Rep on July 10, 11 and 12th and a special outdoor performance on July 17th.
Tonight is initiation for all the new folks. I'm looking forward to

I've been sworn to secrecy.
Bryan is very excited to be performing as JoJo, the boy who imagines the world of Seuss, in the production of Seussical
the Musical at the Mountaineers' Kitsap Forest Theatre. This is a toe tapping musical with many fun songs and stories taken from several

Other Stories," "McElligot's Pool" and "Oh, The Places You'll Go!". The Forest Theatre is an 800 seat outdoor amphitheater

Went to lunch with Brooke Stone who is in town with the Grease Broadway
tour. In the evening we went to the show at the 5th Avenue! Afterwards
Brooke gave us a backstage tour. I can't believe they hang the car from
I'm glad to have worked with Rick May again on Driftwood Player's
production of Auntie mame. I'm sad to close the show, but we celebrate
today with a great cast potluck party.
I am really enjoying doing Lost in Yonkers with Michael Klinge.
Tonight I was doing a show at the Tacoma Little Theatre. Afterwards we
come out and it is snowing hard with six inches on the ground. After
my dad slips and slides trying to get to the freeway, we decide it is
too dangerous to drive home and spend the night at the Tacoma Best
Dawn and Bryan stuck in Macau -- weathering out Typhoon Nuri
Dawn and Bryan were supposed to leave Macau, China (near Hong Kong) today. Before they could get away the city was shut down with the approaching Typhoon Nuri.
In a rare move today, the Hong Kong Observatory raised the Signal Number 9 (Increasing Gale). Signal Number 9 is the second to the highest warning where Signal Number 10 means a direct hit of a hurricane. During a Signal 9 the city is completely shut down including all public facilities, transportation and bridges.
Due to it's exposure to the South China Sea, Hong Kong is built to withstand a full typhoon hit with winds of 150 mph. As a result, little to no damage is anticipated from Typhoon Nuri.
Our room is right next to Matt's room in our hotel. One night room service brought up our dinners on a beautifully set rolling table. I pushed the table into Matt's room and we got to eat a fancy dinner together. It is really hot here and the closest McDonald's is a fifteen minute walk from the hotel. The show is doing well here and the theater had a benefit for the earthquake victims on opening weekend.
I woke up at nine o'clock to get ready to leave Harbin. There was a long flight ahead of us to Nanning, but we entertained ourselves. I played my DS and on my computer, and it was lots of fun! Then, we got to a fabulous Best Western hotel, and it is almost as good as the J.W. Marriott! There is a huge pool, comfy beds, and a nice desk for me to type on. It is awesome! Now, Mom, Wawa, and I are waiting for our room service, and my stomach is aching, Gotta go! Bye!
Sincerely, Bryan Hanner
Today, the cast had the whole day off (except for a show at 6:30). I slept in until eleven, and Wawa (my dad), Mom, and I finally got to Tom's World (a nearby arcade) at noon. There ( over the course of a couple days) won 5,500 tickets, but saved them for another hoped-for Tom's World to get more tickets and a better prize. Then, there was just enough time to go to KFC before the show. During the show, I did some history, spelling, and science. Now, I am going to play with Matt and Zachary. Bye! -- Bryan
Today, I went to the tiger park and Sun Island Park! At the tiger park, I got to watch the handlers feed the tigers an alive duck and some dead meat and hold a baby tiger. He was so cute! After that, we went to Sun Island Park and it was awesome. There was a playground, a place where you could feed deer, a building full of ice sculptures, and lots more. We didn't do most of that stuff, so we prepared us for another fun day at Sun Island Park! -Bryan
Last week we got new information on our return to China and our changed tour itinerary. We'll be returning to China (Guiyang), on June 7th. We will tour through China for almost 3 more months, then go to Thailand, the Philippines, Taiwan and Korea.
Today I went with my parents to Seattle to work with our video editor. We worked together for several hours and finished up my new audition reel. It is kinda weird to watch yourself, but I think it is a good video.
Here is the photo my mom took of me with a 7 month old baby girl Panda. She wasn't heavy at all and she sure was cute! I held her for quite a while and fed her lots of bamboo roots.
Today we had a field trip to Chengdu's Giant Panda Breeding Center and Research Base. It is the biggest facility of it's kind in the world. The Research Base is home to some 60 giant Pandas and also some Red Pandas. I'm going back in a few days to get my picture taken with a Panda.
Here is a picture of the cast and me at the Panda Research Base.
My dad just posted the Performance Schedule (Original Schedule) online along with a map with each stop numbered [New Schedule here]. On Easter we had a special visit from the Easter Bunny. A six foot Easter Bunny at that! The bunny delivered candy and treats me and all the kids.
Tonight we went on a special fieldtrip to the Chinese Opera.
This is a picture from our hotel room of the traffic jams in Chengdu. Everyone just goes at the same time. Lots of bicycles everywhere. I'm having fun getting to know the new cast and already has some new friends. We have two weeks of rehearsals in Chengdu and then we start performing.
My mom and I arrived today in Chengdu, China. We were greeted at the airport with several camera crews from the local TV stations. We have a couple days off to recover from jet lag, but I feel great!
Today I had Sound of Music rehearsal at Ripley-Grier Studios in New York City. Everyone else has been practicing all week. Since I was on the Peter Pan Tour I was allowed to join rehearsals later in the week.
Today was our last performance of Peter Pan. It was hard saying goodbye to all my new friends. After the show my mom and I traveled from Texas to New York City with Danny and several other cast members of The Peter Pan National Tour.
