Richard Biever joins School of Performing Arts

The School of Performing Arts is excited to announce the latest addition to our faculty: Richard Biever. Richard will begin teaching, directing, and sharing his passion with our students in fall 2022.

Richard Biever has been creating theatre for most of his life — starting at his hometown community theatre in Nappanee, Indiana, doing children’s shows; several seasons of summer stock; music directing national and international tours; directing off-Broadway, regionally and with his own theatre companies, Richard has been an actor, music director, composer, and director, sometimes wearing multiple hats.

Richard attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York, received a bachelor’s of music education from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, and an MFA in directing for the Musical Theatre from Penn State University, working primarily with Broadway director Susan H. Schulman.
