Roger Rousseau strives to create works that are accessible and impactful. He has written and directed several promotional videos for Against the Grain Theatre’s modern adaptations of classic operas, most notably Figaro’s Wedding and #UncleJohn, providing a narrative introduction to the stories and characters through a series of social media campaigns. Most recently, he has written two plays produced by Solar Stage Children’s Theatre, including an original story titled Krampus the Christmas Curmudgeon, which recounts the heartwarming tale of redemption of its title character; and A Merry Munsch Pyjama Party, an adaptation of Robert Munsch stories for the stage.

A Franco-Ontarian from Timmins, Ontario, who graduated from York University with a BFA in Film and Video Production, Roger has written and directed several short films. He has also made several forays into the copywriting world, and is an avid photographer, with experience photographing performances and events, including weddings, concerts, theatrical productions and burlesque.
