Award-winning theatre actor and singer Jonathan Roxmouth is in the loft with us today.
Jonathan started his career many years ago in a series of baby adverts. The acting bug bit and he has never looked back. He gained the bulk of his “training” by participating in a number of musicals at the Natal Playhouse. These included Guys and Dolls, Oklahoma!, The Mikado, Me and My Girl and the Pirates of Penzance.
He made his professional debut in 2006 in the Barnyard’s production of Grease. He followed that up with Rock Me, Amadeus and The Buddy Holly Story, both directed by Ian von Memerty – a meeting that would affect the course of his young career. The big musicals finally beckoned and he played Lun Tha in Packed House Productions’ The King and I.
Jonathan can next be seen as Tony in The Fugard Theatre’s production of West Side Story at the ArtsCape Opera House in Cape Town from this month.
