The Red Barn Theatre welcomes David Frisinger to the stage in “A Gentleman and a Scoundrel.”

Originally from the Comstock area, Frisinger was involved in earlier years (1970–1973) at Red Barn, during a time when Nina Klauss was getting the Hardscrabble Players on the Red Barn stage. Frisinger attended University of Wisconsin-Barron County when Terry Wiesner suggested he audition at Red Barn.

In the years since he last graced the Red Barn stage, Frisinger acted in Virginia Theater productions in Virginia Beach, Va. He has also appeared in films and on television shows, such as “Billy Bathgate,” “My Name is Bill W.,” “Young Indiana Jones,” “Matlock,” “The New Detectives” and “Ghost Stories.” He recently retired from the Christian Broadcasting Network in Virginia Beach.
