About | Ron Bopst

Hi! Welcome to the bio of actor Ron Bopst! Ron is an Army brat who was born in Stuttgart, Germany and grew up in a blue collar suburb of Baltimore, Maryland, the youngest son of a dump truck owner/driver father and a defense industry lab technician mother. Since he is the youngest of their four children, he is, of course, their favorite! (Don’t tell his siblings!) Basically, his family is pretty close and laugh all the time. They’re funny people, y’all!

Ron began singing at an early age and this led to his theatrical debut as Mr. Bumble in Oliver! at the Annapolis Children’s Theatre. He now had the bug, but it lay dormant until high school and being cast in major roles there.

Ron Bopst has appeared Off Broadway in Kevin Brofsky’s Claymont with Emerging Artists Theatre. He most recently received critical acclaim in productions of Tis Pity She’s a Whore with Toy Box Theatre Company (as Friar Bonaventura and Donado) and as Dr. Einstein in Dysfunctional Theatre Company’s Arsenic and Old Lace.

Ron is a member of the acting companies of Handcart Ensemble (ww.handcartensemble.org) and TOSOS (www.tosos.com). For six years, Ron was a member of the acting company of Emerging Artists Theatre where he made his Off Broadway debut and served as Actors’ Company Manager.

At EAT, Ron was seen in the GLAAD-nominated, smash hit Bernadette and the Butcher of Broadway (co-produced by TOSOS) and its New York Innovative Theatre Award-nominated sequel, Tonylust! The Broadway Bloodbath of 2006. Regionally, Ron has performed such diverse roles as Andrei in Chekhov’s Three Sisters, Malvolio in Twelfth Night, Friar Laurence in Romeo and Juliet and Sir Joseph Porter in HMS Pinafore.

With Handcart Ensemble, Ron has appeared in and received critical praise in Two Yeats’ Plays: The Cast and the Moon and The Only Jealousy of Emer, The Burial at Thebes, Seamus Heaney’s updated Antigone, and in the leading role in Euripides’ Alcestis. He hopes to return to the classics in something with Handcart in the near future.

In addition to his acting pursuits, Ron has also directed for Emerging Artists Theatre and is a Judge At Large for the New York Innovative Theatre Awards (www.nyitawards.org), which recognize excellence in Off-Off Broadway, or independent, New York theatre. Ron is a member of Actors’ Equity Association and the Screen Actors Guild.

That bowtie is the size of my head!

Ron received his formal acting and singing training at the University of Maryland Baltimore County and has continued his training in various master scene study classes and seminars since moving to New York City. He performed extensively in theatres around Baltimore before making his move to the Big Apple.
