Since graduating from NIDA in 1983, Ritchie has worked extensively in all mediums. There are not many nationalities he hasn’t played, even the odd Aussie once in a while!
Stage highlights: Playing Dodge in Sam Shepard’s Buried Child at NIDA directed by Kevin Jackson, Hans in David Williamson’s The Department directed by Rodney Fisher. Australian tour of Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple (female version) and Laughter on the 23rd Floor for Ensemble Theatre in 1998 and fond memories of a national tour that starred Lauren Bacall in Sweet Bird of Youth back in 1988. Film favourites include Con in Crocodile Dundee, the Rev Rick for Lionsgate’s Rapturepalooza and Dr Symonds in Charlie’s Country for Rolf De Heer.
On television, Terry (so bad he’s good) Madigan in Water Rats, Richard Shapiro in Dynasty: The Making Of A Guilty Pleasure for Hallmark Films USA and Justice Rosenberg for ABC’s Crownies 2011. Ritchie appears in The Reckoning for Sony Pictures/ Playmaker Films in 2019.
