Frank Menolascino: Actor, Writer. (AEA Member)

Frank Menolascino

Trained in Stanislavski’s system, Frank has played a variety of roles on stage and on camera throughout the Chicago scene, honing his craft through never-ending work. From Durang’s comedies to other ensemble laugh-fests, to intense dramas like David Rabe and burgeoning original works, Frank has both carried productions and been the supporting player, with a rich and diverse character history.

Frank also regularly performs in on camera projects (Reel here), completing over a dozen films in the Chicago independent scene, including “White Shoes Black Water,” which featured Jim O’Heir and Joel Murray. He is also a screenwriter, and debuted his first short film, “Shadows,” in July 2015, which he also directed and performed in.

You can also find Frank as Babyface Bambino, entertaining guests at Untouchable Tours Chicago (2018 TripExpert Choice Award), a ride through the city’s prohibition era; making use of that lifelong love of organized crime history!

He possesses a Bachelor’s degree in Communications from Elmhurst College; and when it comes to other interests, music and sports are his most loved. Frank is a diehard Alice in Chains fan, loving all things Layne Staley and Jerry Cantrell. Seattle gave us rock and roll for the hurting soul. He’s also a lifelong 2Pac fan, the greatest artist rap has ever known.

Sports you ask? His allegiance is to all Chicago teams except football (90’s kid: MJ all day, White Sox, Blackhawks). The rebel spirit of the Miami Hurricanes loom large, and he’s been riding with the now Los Angeles Rams since their St. Louis days. Hollywood, baby.

He is represented by Hayes Talent, in Chicago, IL, and looks forward to climbing the top of the mountain that is the business!
