Richard Kent Green . . .
... wanted to be a clown when he was three years old. He has studied and worked in the theater since he was ten years old. He grew up in Seaview, Fire Island, NY, (every summer, all summer) while living the rest of the year in Indiana, Virginia, and Tennessee. Richard first attended acting classes at the Lynchburg, VA, Fine Arts Center. While in junior high and high school in Johnson City, TN, he appeared in every community theater or school production he could find, and he sang in the Science Hill High School Choir - a 160-voice, nationally-recognized, award-winning choir - under the direction of Rodney Sturtz. Richard graduated in the top 10% of his class and he appeared in Who's Who Among America's High School Students. He majored in theater at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. He performed at both the Clarence Brown Theater and the Hunter Hills Outdoor Theater, and on tour with U.T.'s Scholar's Troupe.
Richard left college early to work as an actor/singer/etc., playing all over the United States, starting at Opryland, U.S.A., in Nashville. He toured with the legendary Alpha-Omega Players of The Repertory Theater of America (four players in a four-show repertory... playing theaters, civic centers, churches, colleges, high schools, country clubs and military bases in 33 states - 10,000 miles of one-night-stands). He was a singing waiter at Musicana Supper Clubs in Florida and Georgia. He was a resident clown, director and actor at a resort hotel in French Lick, IN.
Richard moved to NYC, and studied acting at HB Studios and the Clyde Vinson Studio. He has worked on the stages of Off-Broadway and Off-Off Broadway (with many theater companies of note), and he has professional credits in film, and TV. The total number of roles he's originated is well into the hundreds - he has literally lost count.
For many years, he "flirted and squirted" fragrances and hawked Gifts-with-Purchase at every major department and specialty store in Manhattan.
Since 2002, he's been a Company Artist of The Workshop Theater, on West 36th Street, where he has served as actor, director, producer, administrator, manager and sometime designer.
Since 2015, he has worked as a Teaching Artist in NYC public schools, through a program at Town Hall, building sets for performing arts high school productions and teaching basic music skills to K and Pre-K children.
Since 2016, he's played banjolele in "Unintended Consequences" a novelty band.
He lives in Hell's Kitchen.
