Rocco Renda, that dashing young man about town, has lived in the Chicagoland area his entire life except for four years earning his B.A. in Theatre at Eastern Illinois University. Rocco has always been a Renaissance man of theatre; acting, directing, costuming, and writing. Working with Cuckoo's Theater Project is no different. Recently you may have seen him performing in PETER/WENDY (Mr. Darling/Smee), THE LOST BOY (Old Crow), or DANGEROUS (Rosemond), or his costuming skills in THE GLASS MENAGERIE. When he is not involved in theatre (which is quite rare), Rocco enjoys reading, going to movies, watching TV, writing, and being the best son/boyfriend/brother/friend/uncle/nephew/cousin he can be.
