"LONG LIVE TRUE ROCK!"
An all-volunteer group stationed in Baltimore, Maryland the B.R.O.S. (as they are commonly referred to as) are dedicated to creating the most mind-blowing, face-melting, gut-busting theater ever. Specifically, rock opera
. What started with a small group of Goucher college graduates has encompassed a bevy of multi-talented twenty-somethings, whose talents include dance, music, puppetry, fine arts, and craftsmanship. With a total of three original shows, the B.R.O.S. pledge to continue to bring rock to the masses for the next seven thousand years.
The shows created by the B.R.O.S. are as follows:
In a land where music has the power to grow crops and win wars, the dark king Lothorio usurps the throne and bends the people to his will using the foul creature known as the Gründle, an ancient beast that feeds upon the musical talent of others. Only the young prince Bennadon, raised as a farmboy, can wield the Gründlehammer, the ultimate guitar, and save the kingdom.
