A midwest guy lookin' to tell stories from coast to coast
John Broda (he/him/his), a Michigan native, is a BFA Musical Theatre graduate of Taylor University (2020). Over the past seven years, he has had experience in both performance and directing youth theatre. His drive as an actor is matched by his passion to help young artists find a voice.
Most recently, John returned to Taylor University in September 2020 to play John the Baptist/Judas in an outdoor performance of Godspell. He is very excited to announce that he will be joining the Cortland Repertory Theatre family this summer for their 2021 season in A Midsummer Night's Dream and Goin' to the Chapel.
Some of his favorite credits include: 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; Frederic in Pirates of Penzance; Robertson Ay in Mary Poppins.
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. In every process it is my aspiration to collaborate in a way that enlivens the work but, more importantly, speaks into the lives of those around me in a fresh way.
As a performing artist it is my desire to create spaces where humans have the opportunity to connect with one another in order that they may transcend the mundane; ignite the soul's passion to live, reflect, and transform beyond the walls of the theatre.
Thanks for checking out my site!
I'd love to hear from you
