Their fathers, Hucklebee (Jon Reeves) and Bellomy (Larry Hyatt) have built a wall to keep the young lovers apart. Henry (James Matherne), Mortimer (River Olden) and The Mute (Alex Simon) assist El Gallo in telling the story of the young lovers, falling in love, growing apart and finally find their way back to each other. Realizing the truth of El Gallo’s words “without hurt, the heart is hollow”. Vocal music director is Nicole Melancon, piano accompaniment is by Casey Haynes and Ethan Rodrigue is choreographer.
