Rick performs in four or five productions a year. Most recently he appeared as MacHeath in The Threepenny Opera at UVM. G.R. was, until early this year, the announcer for the entire nine-year run of Burlington's hottest game show sensation, Survey Says! He is happy to spend the weekend following this production giving away his cousin at her wedding ("Take my cousin, please!").
