Since his senior year in high school, Rick has been involved in the theatre in both educational settings, as well as on the professional stage. After attending several colleges throughout Texas, he completed his bachelors degree at the University of Texas-Tyler. Since then, he has acted, taught theatre and speech, and worked in broadcasting. This will be his 6th season with the Texas Shakespeare Festival, where favorite past roles include Belarius in "Cymbeline" and Alfred P. Doolittle in "My Fair Lady." Other favorites are his turn as Selsden in "Noises Off, Scrub in "The Beaux Stratagem", and the Old Shepard in "Winter's Tale." Rick wishes to express his deepest thanks to Mr. Caldwell and Mr. Dodd for allowing him to be a part of TSF's 32nd season! He would also like to dedicate his performances this summer to his sweet parents. Thanks for everything mom and dad!
