About Ron Dufort

Ron Dufort Headshot

Ron Dufort is originally from the Lake Champlain Valley in Northeastern New York, Ron has spent the last thirty years making Rochester his home, building both an engineering life – as a product development engineer at the Xerox Corporation – and a performing life – as an actor and trombonist in Western New York. The vibrant arts community in this area has enabled him to be a part of some amazing productions with remarkable people, bringing stories to life and connecting people and their lives.  When not acting on stage, he may be found acting on a film set, or building a set, or setting – sitting – on an advisory board or a board of directors of a non-profit (or four).  He finds that working behind the scenes, helping enable a group to do amazing work, can be as rewarding as the work itself – be it a theatre company, an international friendship organization, or an engineering college. “It is a joy and an inspiration to be involved with the Company Theatre, especially as we lay the foundation for many years of creativity and innovation and community!”
