Cody is from Stilwell, Kansas, and is excited to be back with Crane River Theater in Kearney after being a part of the 2018 summer season. He started getting involved with theater as an actor on stage in middle school. In high school, Cody was more interested in the behind-the-scenes of theater, which lead him to earn a BFA in Theater Technology and Design from the University of Central Missouri. While at UCM, he participated in more than 20 mainstage productions and countless student-led black box productions, was a leader for The United States Institute for Theatre Technology chapter at UCM, and was a part of leadership within Theta Alpha Phi. Since graduating from the University, Cody served as the Technical Director at The Presser Performing Arts Center in Mexico, Missouri, and taught Stagecraft and Acting for cadets at the Missouri Military Academy. Cody is excited to be back in Kearney once again and to be a part of the future of Crane River Theater.
