Annie Get Your Gun
Richard came to theatre late in life not performing in his first show until he was 31 in Phoenix Player's production of Kiss Me Kate (2006). The following years saw him perform in a succession of shows ranging from musicals, plays and pantomimes. He had roles in more than 20 shows in the chorus, as a pit singer, playing minor roles and most recently as understudy for Javert in Canberra Philharmonics production of Les Miserables (2013). Annie Get Your Gun marks Richard's first time as the leading man in a show. "I'm both terrified and excited. Frank is a wonderful character to play and very challenging but the cast and production team have been wonderfully supportive."
As active off stage as he is on, Richard has served on the committees of local Canberra theatre companies including Phoenix Players and SUPA Productions, operated lighting and sound, crewed, production managed and last year directed his first show How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (2012) for Phoenix Player's Phoenix Rising Program for which he was nominated for the Canberra Area Theatre Patricia Kelson Encouragement Award. When not working in theatre Richard manages a publishing company and operates the popular theatre website
