Steve Roma (Bobby Strong)

Steve Roma is proud to make his Sunnyvale Community Players debut. He has previously appeared on the SBMT stage in The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Big River, as well as the Tabard Theatre stage in Queen of the Mist. He has had the pleasure of appearing in shows such as Forever Plaid, Les Misérables, The Andrews Brothers and many others. He is so thankful for the support of his friends and family during the rehearsal and performance process, as well as the talented cast and crew who have poured their hearts into this production.

How did you get started in Theater? 

A college professor invited me to audition for the spring musical and ever since being cast in that show I’ve been hooked on the creation of characters and entertaining audiences.

In what ways do you relate to your character(s)? 

Bobby Strong and I are both charismatic and a little too passionate for our own good. We dive into things headfirst without checking the depth of the water, and sometimes it doesn’t end so well. We also both love the people around us, and we don’t like seeing people being mistreated.

What is something people would be surprised to know about you?

 I worked on a farm for 12 years of my life, and that golf is quickly becoming one of my favorite outdoor activities.

Why do you think this Urinetown is relevant today? 

Today, most disagreements and issues seem to be extremely polarized, with little attempt to hear each other out. Sometimes when we exaggerate a situation the blindspots become more clear. This show does exactly that. It exaggerates the blindspots of both sides of an issue and makes us consider our own blind spots.

Why should people come see Urinetown? 


We know that you will be entertained, but we also hope that you will leave seeing other those with opposing views differently and more compassionately than when you arrived.
