Born and raised in Santa Cruz, Ric couldn’t be more thrilled than to be performing The World Goes ‘Round at Jewel Theatre Company. Favorite roles include: The Balladeer in the West Coast premiere of Assassins (for which he won a Ginny Award), Tom in No No Nanette, Archie Leitch in Chaps! and Christmas Chaps!, Father Virgil Manly Trott in Nunsense 3 (another West Coast Premiere directed by the author, Dan Goggin), and Peter Jones, Jr. in Cumberland Blues (World Premiere). Ric has been lucky enough to work with Jerry Herman in Tune The Grand Up on the Delta King Riverboat in Sacramento, and last year had the great honor of playing Cornelius Hackl in Hello Dolly starring the fabulous Leslie Uggams. When not onstage, you can find Ric adventuring around the bay area with his partner, Chris and their two kids, Katie (15) and Zachary (11).
