The ASB season of Under the Mountain is Richie Grzyb’s debut performance for Auckland Theatre Company. He graduated from Unitec’s acting programme in 2014 and has been working solidly in theatre and screen since. The Auckland-based actor grew up in rural Hawke’s Bay and Palmerston North, performing in the local musical theatre scene. In 2016, Richie toured nationally with The Ugly Shakespeare Company and has since worked with Tim Bray Productions. He is a proud member of the Te Pou whānau. His screen credits include the telemovie Vermilion, set for release in 2018, and the web series The Han Chronicles, which is currently screening on TVNZ OnDemand.
Richie has always aspired to work for ATC and is super-excited about this opportunity to work with this amazing cast and crew. In his spare time, he loves to play his guitar and sports, and enjoys good food with friends.
