Kodi has been involved in the performing arts for as long as she can remember, and joined Theatre Bugs classes when she was 9. She spent 6 years in the highest performance group, with her last performance as ‘Mrs. Potts’ in their production of Beauty and the Beast Jr. With Theatre Bugs she has also performed in dozens of public performances, including in the Adelaide Fringe, for Something on Saturday, and on Peter Combe’s Melbourne tour in 2015.
Throughout her childhood and teenage years, Kodi was also heavily involved with the Australian Girls’ Choir, where she gained extensive vocal training for 12 years. She was chosen to film for Qantas’s 2009 ‘I Still Call Australia Home’ commercial, as well as performing alongside Jessica Mauboy, David Campbell in Los Angeles, and behind Hugh Jackman in his 2015 Broadway to Oz tour.
Musical theatre has been a huge part of Kodi’s life, and some of her favourite roles have included ‘Violet Moore’ in Footloose (Parks Theatre Company, 2017), ‘Jovie’ in Elf Jr. (Theatre Bugs, 2016), and ‘Brigitta’ in The Sound of Music (The G & S Society of SA, 2014).
Kodi is currently studying Communication and Media at the University of South Australia, and she has an adorable little dog named Oreo. She loves working at Theatre Bugs and seeing her gorgeous students every week. She says the best part of her job is encouraging them, watching them thrive on stage and seeing their confidence build in every single class.
