Teenage Dick

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.

We’re thrilled to cheer on Realwheels Acting Academy students Jennifer Burgmann (Assistant Director) and Cadence Rush Quibell (who plays Barbara “Buck” Buckingham), along with the amazing cast, collaborators and crew of Teenage Dick! 👏
