Looking Ahead

Happy End of December and another decade of our Lives!

Wow! What a whirlwind November was. Everything is once again building up to my show on December 11th at Urban Stages here in NY. I'm happy to report it was a resounding success for me artistically when I performed it this summer and autumn at St. Luke's in NY and The Theatre of the Republic in Conway, SC where it all began for me 45 years ago. . Thank you to all of you who attended in both New York in August and South Carolina and especially those of you who traveled from all over the country. I hope to replicate that success on December 11th as I bring the show to Urban Stages to kick off their Winter Rhythms series. As I continue to celebrate my 40th year in New York, The Theatre of the Republic is celebrating their 50th year. Who knows what the trajectory of my life would have been if this theatre never existed. Going home again meant a lot to me and I was glad to see many of my friends, family, and former classmates as I celebrated my life thus far. I made new friends as well. Read the press on our press and articles page.

A Few Audience Testimonials about Richard Skipper Celebrates

I usually attend these events (Dancers Over 40 Celebration of Marge Champion) as a theater critic, but since I had a friend involved in the first portion of the evening's show (celebrating Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat), I went as a spectator. I had known OF Richard Skipper but had never seen him onstage. He was remarkably charming, knowledgeable, and friendly to the entire panel. Consequently, it was well received by a gracious audience. Bravo!

I was lucky enough to see Richard Skipper perform in his hometown of Conway, SC! My mom was a classmate of Richard’s and when we heard of the performance, we immediately bought tickets. Let me just say, the show was phenomenal! Richard’s persistence in chasing his dreams gave me chills and although I never knew him personally, I felt instantly connected to his life’s journey! It was so excited to hear the story of his goals unfold and it was such a pleasure to hear his beautiful voice throughout the show! I can’t wait to see him again, and hopefully in NYC!!
Courtney Johnson, Conway, SC

I enjoyed Richard Skipper's show so much. How he remembers all the things he has done in such detail is amazing. It made me feel like I was on his journey With him!
