Ric Averill is a theatre arts factotum, working as a playwright, director, screenwriter, composer, music director, conductor, actor, musician and educator. Averill serves as the emeritus artistic director of performing arts at the Lawrence Arts Center, the original home of his midcareer touring company Seem-To-Be Players. Averill received the AATE Charlotte Chorpenning Cup for lifetime achievement award in playwrighting. He has had productions commissioned the Kennedy Center, First Stage, The Coterie Theatre, the Lawrence Arts Center, Nashville Children’s Theatre and many more. Averill’s most recent works include The Fantastical Dangerous Journey of Q, commissioned by the Rebel Playhouse in New York, and The Snow Queen, a 90-minute ballet/dance drama featuring 60 minutes of music and dance plus a 40-minute script that enables a dance company to work with a theatre company to produce a large multi-age, multilevel cast. Averill’s works are regularly done across the country and in his semi-retirement, he loves to attend shows and serve as guest playwright whenever possible. His wife, Jeanne, is an accomplished actress, teacher, co-writer and the major influence in his work. Averill’s adult children, Will Averill and Trish Neuteboom, are also major contributors to the Averill family’s theatre work in Lawrence, Kansas, and beyond. The Averills have four grandchildren, who have already taken to the stage in their works and others.
