We are The Bearded Men. We weave epic tales of heart-warming proportions. We harken back to the days of the storytelling bards and mix it with a modern scenic charm. One suggestion catapults our audience into an epic journey ranging from the aisles of a shopping center to forbidden planets, from the high seas to the old west… always crafted with a hint of danger, romance and a dash of spectacle. So sharpen your swords, grab your high heels, and get ready for one hell of an adventure.
