About the role:

Character Synopsis:
“Johnno” Johnson is the quintessential Australian cattleman. Having grown up on the land he offers realism in both, an emcee delivering historical narrative as well as a fictional character storyteller. He resides at Warrego Station, a working cattle station in the heart of the Outback, with his best mate “Bluey” the Camp Cook. Bluey provides comic relief throughout the performance. Although Johnno is quite a serious man, he delights in brief moments with Bluey where you see some Aussie larrikinism shine through; much to the frustration of his beautiful wife “Annie.”
