Originally from Northern California, Bryce Ryness began his professional career in a seemingly inauspicious way – as a business major at the University of Southern California and member of the collegiate a cappella group The SoCal VoCals. Somehow, through many a winding road, that parlayed its way into a multi-decade career boasting 5 Broadway shows, 12 television appearances, 7 Off-Broadway shows, 3 cast albums, 2 personal albums, and playing more than 50 cities on two different National tours.
Most recently on Broadway, he starred as the terrifying ‘Miss Trunchbull’ in the record-breaking, final company of Matilda, thrilling audiences and garnering critical praise for his unique interpretation of an extraordinary character. Also on Broadway; HAIR (2009 Tony Award Winning Revival), FIRST DATE, LEAP OF FAITH, and the hilarious LEGALLY BLONDE: The Musical.
He’s been principal soloist with the Boston Pops, Houston Symphony, Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, Atlanta Symphony, Jacksonville Symphony, and Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. He makes his home in Pasadena, CA with his wife and 3 kids. He also does custom woodworking, specializing in treehouses! Check out his portfolio on Instagram @rynesswoodworking
