Richard Lyders – Perhaps it was Richard’s destiny to sing and dance alongside Tamarie Cooper in the Tamarie Cooper collaborations. After all, they’ve been performing together since they met at HSPVA in the late eighties. Richard has been in thirteen of the fifteen Tamarie shows–his most famous role to date as Bacon in [fill in which ones]. While not working at his daytime job as a systems architect/computer programmer, Richard can be seen swing dancing, tap dancing, modern dancing–well, you get the drift. With an unusual combination of grace, comic presence, and beautiful vocal delivery, Richard was made for the stage.
