These recent times have been some of the hardest challenges we've faced and as a community, it hit us pretty hard. However during these difficult times, here at Pocket Size Theatre, we wanted to spread a little positivity and share some peoples experiences because we are all in this together. Each day we'll be speaking to our friends in the industry to share their experiences with you all so take a read and see how people are getting through these hard times.

Let's stick together, share the love and get through this as a community!

Kody Mortimer is due to appear in the cast of Hairspray at the London Coliseum, playing the role of Thad and appearing in the ensemble. Previously he was in the cast of Gypsy at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester in the ensemble and playing Yonkers. 

On Monday 16th March 2020, The Society of London Theatre announced the closure of all Theatres in London. This followed suit with regional venues. Where were you when you found out and what was your initial reaction? 

I had just started my first day of rehearsals for Hairspray in the West End so it felt very bittersweet indeed. My initial reaction was confusion and disappointment, mainly because everyone in the cast gelled so quickly and we were having a great time. 

Can you tell us anything productive you’ve been doing? 

I’ve been at home exercising every day which is much more than I normally ever would when I’m back at home. I do this by using Instagram Livestream workouts or workouts with my friend who is a Personal Trainer. I’ve started doing Yoga, following ‘YogawithAdriene’ on YouTube. I’ve been involved in quite a few group singing videos and I have also been doing an online diploma course studying Sports Massage Therapy, which is a really nice and interesting change to what I normally get up to.
