RICHARD III MEETS MEAN GIRLS IN THIS HIGH-SCHOOL POWER STRUGGLE
What’s a teenaged Richard Gloucester to do when he’s made the laughingstock of Roseland High School? Run for senior class president, of course. But will winning the presidential race—against the star quarterback, no less—be enough to satisfy his hunger for popularity? This deliciously witty and darkly funny Shakespeare adaptation takes a modern stance on disability, power, and perception.
Featuring Realwheels Acting Academy students Jennifer Burgmann (Assistant Director) and Cadence Rush Quibell (Barbara “Buck” Buckingham), along with an amazing cast and creative team!

“Teenage Dick delves deeply into questions of morality, the limits of pity, the role of the victim, the way anything can be justified, and how people with disabilities are often invisible…. And that dance scene? It’s so joyous it might move you to tears.”
