Rod Armentrout

Provision Cast Member - as Chuck Colson

has been seen in Provision Theater’s productions of Best of Enemies, Heaven: How I Got Here, Jacob, Fish Eyes, The Foreigner and Bonhoeffer’s Cost. In past years he spent most of his time working as an actor with Willow Creek Community Church and the Willow Creek Association. During a typical weekend at Willow Creek he would perform in or direct original short plays before thousands of attenders – it was always exhilarating and humbling. While working with the Willow Creek Association, he was given the opportunity to perform live in Norway, Holland, Germany and South Africa. He is honored to be counted amongst the Provision Theater Company Members since 2012 and thanks his amazing family for their constant love and support.
