A midwest guy lookin' to tell stories from coast to coast
Hello! I’m John Broda (he/him)
I am a Michigan native, with a BFA in Musical Theatre from Taylor University (2020). Over the past tens years I’ve had the opportunity to perform, direct youth theatre, and even do some Playback theatre. During 2021, I performed at Cortland Repertory Theatre in NY and The Renaissance Theatre in Ohio. As a performing artist, my drive as an actor is matched by my passion to help audiences and young artists cultivate a love for the arts.
Some of my favorite credits include: Bob Wallace in White Christmas; Judas in Godspell; Steven Kodaly in She Loves Me; Benedick in Much Ado About Nothing; Curly McLain in Oklahoma!; Ed Carmichael in You Can't Take It With You; Giles Ralston in The Mousetrap; Christian de Neuvillette in Cyrano de Bergerac; Robertson Ay in Mary Poppins.
When I am not rehearsing, I enjoy instructional design, yoga, creating with friends, drinking dirty chais, meeting new people, or a combination of all the above. Thanks for stopping by and I hope we have the opportunity to meet.
Within every human lies a desire to know and be known. These two desires collide to create the perfect storm in the theatre, forming the ideal conditions to satisfy both the yearning to
understand and be understood.
As a performing artist it is my desire to tell stories and create spaces where humans have the opportunity to connect with one another in order to understand and be understood, to
give a voice to those whose voice is suppressed by society, and to collaborate in a way that awakens and speaks into the lives of those around me in a fresh way.
In every process and production I am part of
I aspire to have a relationship and conversation with fellow artists and audiences that lasts long after the house goes dark and the credits roll. My mission is to bring us, as differently minded people, out of the virtual silos we have created for ourselves, to ignite our souls’ innate desire to unite, and remind one another that we are more alike than different.
Thanks for checking out my site!
I'd love to hear from you
