Roger Hernandez has worked for the City of Thibodaux since 2007 and serves as the Mechanic for the Thibodaux Police Department (He is the ONLY mechanic with 71 police cars!). However, Roger is more than a city employee. He is also the newly elected (August 2013) President of Thibodaux Playhouse. Roger has been involved with the playhouse for over three years and has performed backstage work and played supporting and leading roles on stage.
The Thibodaux Playhouse is comprised solely of volunteers and highlights local area talent on stage at the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve, 314 St. Mary Street, Thibodaux. The actors perform four regular productions during the year and two children’s workshops each spring.
Alfred Hitchcock’s "The 39 Steps" is opening today (November 1, 2013) at the Playhouse. For more information go to Playhouse website. Roger believes that most people do not know about the playhouse and said, "If they attended just one play, they would want to come back again and again." Thanks Roger Hernandez for all you do as a City employee and for your community involvement. We’ll see you (soon) at the Playhouse!
