Rodriguez on Broadway
Daron Rodriquez, son of former Polk County Teacher Sharon Rodriquez of Reliance, is one of many PCHS graduates who has become quite a success. Daronn graduated in 1994 from PCHS, and his brother Kelly also went to PCHS, as well as his sister Rachel who graduated in 1993.
Daron isn’t the only successful Rodriquez. His son, JD, is a professional actor who recently joined the Broadway production of “A Christmas Story The Musical” as Schwartz. He was 9 in his first performance at the Albrecht Theatre in Illinois as “Ollie” in The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. His next performance prior to professional acting was Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory at the Steele Beam Theatre also in Illinois. Then he performed Christmas Story as an understudy (a 5 state tour – Hershey PA, Detroit MI, Raleigh NC, Tampa FL, Chicago IL) in 2011. He has done a US Cellular Commercial this year and was then offered a role in the Broadway performance of “A Christmas Story The Musical” in New York.
JD has an older sister Taylor, who is starting her first year in high school, that supports him greatly along with his younger sister Sophie. Daron says his family’s success is also made possible by his wife, Stacey.
All the Rodriquez, along with inspiring matriarch Sharon, look forward to supporting JD, and future success.
