Andrew Rathgeber


Friar

Andrew Rathgeber couldn’t be more thrilled to be back in Big Sky Country, and excited to be a part of his first Montana Shakespeare in the Schools tour. Recent Montana Shakespeare in the Park credits include Hotspur (Henry IV: Part 1), Sir Hugh Evans (The Merry Wives of Windsor), Mercutio (Romeo and Juliet), Touchstone (As You Like It), Tranio (Taming of the Shrew) and Cardinal Richelieu (Cyrano). A resident of Chicago, Andrew has worked for Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, Raven Theatre Co., Remy Bumppo, Haven Theatre, Commission Theatre Co., the side project, Oracle Productions, Strawdog, and The House Theatre. Regional credits include American Players Theatre, the Tennessee Williams Festival, and Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park. He also stays busy as a freelance voice-over artist and stage combat choreographer. Andrew trained at the University of Oklahoma School of Drama and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, and is an Advanced Actor Combatant in the Society of American Fight Directors. Huge thanks to Kevin and Bill, and to all those who keep bringing MSIS back to life year after year!
