Rick Desloge

Hailing from St. Louis, Rick graduated from Indiana University and has appeared in numerous stage productions across the United States and Canada. Prior to joining the national tour of WICKED, Rick originated the role of Jim Hawkins in the world premiere of TREASURE ISLAND (Fulton Opera House), a role which he recreated at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre. Other credits include JOSEPH… (Beef & Boards), GREASE (Stages St. Louis), FOREVER PLAID, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, and GUYS AND DOLLS.

Alongside his Wicked company, Rick appeared as Riff Raff in a sold-out one night only benefit of the WICKED ROCKY HORROR SHOW at the New Tropicana in Las Vegas, which raised over $81,000 for Broadway Cares / Equity Fights Aids. Rick can be seen in an ongoing series of concerts benefiting the Educational Theatre Association, which supports high school and college performers.

In addition to his charitable work on-stage, Rick passionately supports the funding of pancreatic cancer research through the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network and the Lustgarten Foundation.

When he’s not on stage, he enjoys playing a pick up game of ice hockey, walking his dynamo of a dog named Bandit, exploring his Park Slope neighborhood and offering strength and conditioning training to athletes and gym-goers.
