as Luigi Domenico
in Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding
Luigi is Tina’s great uncle, an old world gentleman, and he speaks Italian.
Dave began his theater addiction when his friend, Paul Lipscomb, invited him to an improv workshop taught by Steve Eiffert. The result was Fools Rush In, or the Election ’88 produced by SLT and staged at the Vandivort 4th Floor Theatre. He has been acting – and acting up – ever since. He has done stand-up comedy, was a member of Springfield’s “On the Spot” improv group, and performed in dozens of local productions – scripted or otherwise – on stages all over the Ozarks. SLT audiences may remember him as Selsdon in Noises Off or most recently as Candy in Of Mice and Men. He lives in Springfield with his wife, Jen, and their dog, Scarlett.
