Creative Geniuses

Artistic Director

L/A Community Little Theatre

Manufacturing Cell Setup/Operator


In his day job, Hodgkin works in production at ABB, formerly General Electric, which has been operating in Auburn for over 50 years.

“Working with a great team, with the support of even greater leaders, we manufacture components used in residential and commercial circuit breakers. Homes and business throughout L/A are powered using components made right here by members of our own community, including myself.”

Away from his day job, Hodgkin serves as the artistic director for Community Little Theater, the youngest person ever to hold that key position at the theater. He was nominated and elected by his peers for his acumen as a director and as a leader. He has been instrumental in shepherding shows from auditions to closing and he has been a key person in the organization and in the leadership of CLT.

As stated by a nominator, “He serves as a role model for our young people at CLT and we are very fortunate to have him.”

Hodgkin feels honored to work for such a strong community organization.

“As I write this, we are six weeks into the COVID-19 pandemic. Along with thousands of other community theaters across the country who are unable to produce shows right now and we rely on donations to help keep us going so that we can still be here to serve our community when this is all over. I am proud to say that our patrons, membership, and leaders, almost all of whom live and work in the L/A area, have exhibited great generosity in these difficult times.”
