A Littleton native, Rick is honored to be making his Cherry Creek Theatre debut as Mrs. Bumbrake in this incredible cast of talented folks! After earning an MFA in Acting from the University of Wisconsin, Rick has been seen on stages across the USA and Europe. Colorado audiences may recall his guest artist appearance at the Colorado Shakespeare Festival as Iago in Othello, at Foothills Theater as Claudius in Hamlet, as Bellomy in The Fantasticks at THAC, Big Daddy in Cat On A Hot Tin Roof at The Vintage (for which Rick was nominated for the 2022 Henry Award) and most recently at The Thingamajig Theater in Pagosa Springs, appearing as Daddy Murphy in Bright Star and Big Jule in Guys and Dolls. Playwriting projects include the Spring 2022 InterGen project for the Butterfly Effect Theater Company. Rick would like to thank Kelly Van Oosbree, Susie Snodgrass, Jennifer and Jerimiah Otto for their faith in the “new guy.” Rick is also an award-winning watercolor artist, sharing his work at www.RJLDesignZ.com. Love to Sarah and Toby.
