Frankie Bolda (Frankie) is chomping at the bit and thrilled to be part of her first Cardinal Stage Production.  An Indiana native, Frankie trained at AMDA in NYC before returning to the Hoosier state.  Credits include ComedySportz, EclecticPond Theatre Company (DrankspeareWars of the Roses), Zach & Zack (The Great Bike Race), Civic Theatre (Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)), Indianapolis Shakespeare Company/ HART (The Winter’s Tale) Gal Pal Comedy Festival, Red Curb Comedy, and others.  Many thanks to all the beautiful people at Cardinal Stage for being so gracious, hard-working, and fun to boot. Thanks to Jesse, Hank, and Patrick for being stellar dudes.  And thanks to Ben who has the best taste in music.

Patrick Goss (Patrick) is thrilled to be a part of The Complete History of Comedy (Abridged)! As an actor, he has appeared on various stages throughout the country in just about everything from Shakespeare to Musicals. Past credits include the New York Premier of Leonard Bernstein’s A Whitehouse Cantata at the Rose Theater at Lincoln Center and Kurt Weill’s The Firebrand of Florence at Alice Tully Hall both directed by the late Roger Rees, three seasons with the Tony Award-winning Denver Center Theater Company, and numerous new plays around New York’s lower east side.  Other credits include stage managing the long-running Off-Broadway show My Sinatra and assistant directing the original Off-Broadway production of Forever Dusty: The Dusty Springfield Musical. Add to that a tour of Israel with NYC’s Master Voices and the Israel Philharmonic under Zubin Mehta and a brief stint on the road with Rock and Roll Icon Ronnie Spector and you’ll understand why he is relieved to be Back Home Again in Indiana! Proud member of AEA. Much love to my understanding and supportive parents and family!
