Colin Thomas Jennings practically grew up at The Western Stage in Salinas, central California. The Western Stage is renowned for meticulously adapting some of John Steinbeck's most famous work to the theater, notably the ambitious 8-hour, three part production of East of Eden under the direction of Tom Humphrey. Among his many roles at The Western Stage and other regional theaters, Colin portrayed young "Tom Hamilton" in East of Eden and "Frankie" in the world premiere production of Cannery Row, and narrated the world premiere production of Travels With Charley.
Colin moved south to Los Angeles to continue acting, playing lead roles in The Emperor of the Moon and Dancing at Lughnasa, directed by award-winning director Ken Sawyer, who said of Colin, "What I loved was his ability to go from being the clown, to breaking the audience's heart. The depth of soul within his comedy was fantastic and rare for someone so young. His choices were never cliche'; his approach was always smart and unexpected and heartfelt."
Colin's theater work in Los Angeles continues, roles include "Maurice" in Dianna Douglas' Valdemosa, "Huck Finn" in Greg White's Mark Twain, A River Journey, "Jason" in The Rabbit Hole and multiple productions with the Interact Theatre Company, of which he is a proud and active member.
