wrbcastnewsOver the past few weeks Andrea Flynn, Andrew Mcintyre and Paul Flynn have been auditioning to find the professional cast for The Wind Road Boys. We have auditioned some very talented musical theatre performers and it has been a delightful process. We have auditioned from far and wide including performers from our local region and the West End. We even received applications from performers working internationally. We auditioned many professionals including West End Performers, but after many hours of consideration and a number of recalls we can now confirm that the following actors have been cast to play principal roles in The Wind Road Boys:
