One Less Koch in our Kitchen

We bid a fond farewell to Richard Koch, our Production Manager and all ‘round great guy. Richard has worked on and off for Theatre IV and Barksdale pretty much since his college graduation in the late 80s. We could never have asked for a more faithful and hard working employee. Or a more steadfast friend.

But now dear Richard has moved onward and upward to a similar position at the Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen, where he’ll be working for Henrico County, earning more money and better benefits while tackling a much more manageable work load. It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

To say that we will miss Richard would be the understatement of the century. But hopefully we won’t have much time to miss him, because rumor has it that Richard will now have many more opportunities to appear as an actor in our various productions.

In fact, negotiations have just been completed to have Richard fill in for Scottie Wichmann as Felix Unger for a week in August during the run of The Odd Couple. So we're happy to say "Farewell" and "Welcome Home" both at the same time.

Ahh Richard, I miss you already. Even though I'm across the sea anyway. :)

I just read that Richard is going to be directing for Glen Allen. What a wonderful opportunity for him.
