For the past 30 years, Richard Wade lent his directorial skills to the Annapolis theater scene, frequenting the top of play bills for the Colonial Players, the Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre, and the Annapolis Opera among others. Shortly after moving to Annapolis in the late 1960s, Wade joined an adult acting group and directed his first play in 1970. He describes his extensive journey as a director and gives insight into what will (hopefully) attract young and future theatre-lovers to join in on the fun.
