Romy and Julian

Richard Blackman
Mr Caple

Richard went to Birmingham School of Acting and continued his training with Sam Rumbelow and Steven Ditmyer in London. Credits include two different productions of part verbatim, part improvised musical comedy ‘Tell Me About Your Ex”, the first full scale staging of the musical ‘3 Summers” at the Birmingham Rep and several Shakespeare productions with Instant Classics, Ashrow Theatre and the Cambridge Shakespeare Festival. Richard enjoyed singing boy band songs in amateur pantomimes before discovering something known as a ‘key’. Now he is an actor first and foremost but loves a good old sing song now and again. Just don’t ask him to sing the entire libretto of ‘Les Misérables’ as you will be sat there for his whole five and a half hour performance.
