Roderick’s current news

Currently rehearsing for an April 14th opening of Lone Star Spirits at Festival Theatre in St. Croix Falls, WI. I'll be Walter in this production. This I think will be a really good production.


Rod has acted part time for most of his life as an engineer. He has now sold his business and would like to act full time. He is very fit with a good voice and some tenor/baritone singing talent but club feet for dancing. Age range is very old to 40's.

Rod has studied for a year at Circle In The Square Theater in NYC in the 80's. We worked in the Guthrie's Actor's Workout for three years with Raye Birk, and studied singing with Maury Jones and others.
