RICHARD FOSTER KING
Richard trained on a scholarship at Doreen Bird College graduating with a first class BA (Hons) degree in dance and theatre performance. Whilst at college, Richard performed in numerous shows and musicals for the Bird Theatre Company including the Police Sergeant in The Pirates of Penzance (Shaw Theatre), C J Scruggs in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, (Albany Theatre), and Eddie in The Wild Party (Albany Theatre; a role he repeated at The Linbury Theatre, Royal Opera House for his graduation performance). Upon leaving college, Richard found himself dancing in the street, quite literally, when he went to work for 'the Mouse' as a parade cast member at Disneyland Resort Paris. On his return to London Richard appeared in The Wizard of Oz (Questors Theatre) in which amongst others he created the role of Head of the Emerald City Mafia.
Richard is delighted to be making his Upstairs at The Gatehouse début in the cast of The Young Ones .
