Rod, though relatively new to the writing team, is surely a force to be reckoned with! He made his stage debut at age 5 as a sailor in Bobby Shaftoe at school, then in 2002 as a member of the male chorus in Mother Goose. Since then, Rod has been in every single Launton Pantomime, usually cast in the comedy roles.
A keen and clever writer, Rod has written several well-received Pantomimes: Simple Simon (2009), Bo Peep (2011) and Goldilocks (2013). He has also co-directed/produced other Pantos whilst acting in many Autumn Plays.
When he isn’t writing, he still enjoys performing in low-key roles (or bigger when required!)
