SPARKLE: A Look Behind The Curtain - Toward a Deeper Appreciation Of Live Theatre
Wednesday, January 9, 2019, 2:00 PM until 3:30 PM
Silver Spring Civic Building
1 Veterans Plaza
Silver Spring, MD 20910
In this fun and lively discussion, Rick Foucheux, a Silver Spring Village member, uses his thirty-five year career as a stage actor to reveal the behind-the-scenes workings of putting on plays. A lot of hard work and training go into the magic of theatrical storytelling, and the daily grind of it all might surprise you. A must-see for any theatregoer!
Mr. Foucheux credits a twenty-six year stint in the fine theatres of Washington, DC, where his many roles include Willy Loman in Death of a Salesman at Arena Stage, Sir Toby Belch in Twelfth Night at the Shakespeare Theatre, Tevye in Fiddler on the Roofat the Olney Theatre Center, Claudius in Hamlet at the Folger Theatre, and Erie Smith in Hughie at the Washington Stage Guild. He is a company member at the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company and originated the role of the dead man, Gordon, in their premiere of Sarah Ruhl’s Dead Man’s Cell Phone. Mr. Foucheux received the Helen Hayes Outstanding Lead Actor Award in 2000 for the title role in Edmund at the Source Theatre, and in 2006, for the role of Mason Marzac in Take Me Out at the Studio Theatre.
