Jared Bogolea (Todd)

Jared is thrilled to be returning to Mariposa Theatre for Young Audiences for HOME. He received a BBA from Point Park University in 2017 and recently returned to his native Pittsburgh after living in New York City. He is ecstatic to get back into performing and is looking forward to future shows at Mariposa and other productions within the Pittsburgh theater community.  Jared is grateful to Caren for this chance to return to the stage and for giving him the opportunity to continue the streak of eating food onstage. He would like to thank his friends and, mostly, his family, for their loving support.

Kristin Pacelli (Florrie)

Kristin is thrilled to be continuing her journey with Mariposa TYA after her recent turn as the Queen with a fondness for speaking in rhymes in this past summer's The Princess and the Pea!  She has been involved with Mariposa since its' opening production of Schoolhouse Rock: Live! and has found herself involved with every show that the theater has produced since then, both onstage and off.  When not on the Mariposa stage, Kristin has performed locally with theaters such as Washington Community Theater, Stage 62, and The Strand Theater Initiative.  When she has to set aside playing make-believe, Kristin is also a Junior Benefits Analyst at Dunbar, Bender & Zapf, Inc. Retirement Firm.  Kristin would like to thank Caren for not only giving her the opportunity to continue doing what she loves most, but for challenging her to grow and learn as a performer alongside some truly wonderful people.
