In his 20 year history with SSP, he has been involved both on stage (as an Ugly Stepsister in Cinderella, Angel in RENT, and Uncle Fester in The Addams Family) and behind the scenes, having directed I Love You Because, Cabaret, and Annie. He is the co-founder of Ppl r Ppl Productions, and has since gone on to build strong ties with the rest of Saskatoon’s theatre community, working intimately with companies like SUM Theatre, Persephone Theatre, and La Troupe du Jour.
Ricardo believes in the power of music, positive energy, diversity, and teamwork; and is passionate about the strength and magic they bring to our community. He is honoured and excited to bring his experience and enthusiasm to Saskatoon Summer Players in a leadership capacity, as it has had such a deep impact on his growth as an artist. He looks forward to seeing you on stage and in the audience as soon as we can do so safely!
