Bat Digital Program



Matt Kraft is an actor based in Indianapolis. He has appeared in a variety of productions in the Indy area including Pride and Prejudice (Civic), A Few Good Men (Civic), The 39 Steps (Civic), and The Christmas Spirit (Mud Creek Players). Bat in the Wind is his second time out with Catalyst Repertory after appearing in  A Streetcar Named Desire earlier this year. Matt would like to thank Casey, Zach, Dave, and Audrey for being awesome people to work with! Last but not least, he would like to thank his dog, Bella, who had to listen to these monologues many, many times at home. 


Dave has been with Catalyst since before we were even Catalyst! Joining forces with what would to become our creative team, in 2013, with his first Fringe show appearance in, The Solidarity,  written by Casey Ross and directed by Dane Rogers. Dave has been a leader on the Catalyst team, ever since. An acclaimed actor and celebrated musician, who has been seen on many stages, both theatrical and musical, throughout the country, Dave is also talented wood-worker, painter, and designer; skills that have made him an essential member of our repertory. Dave has had a hand in most of Catalyst’s shows – if he’s not  in  them, he’s usually somewhere behind the scenes; be it building, writing,  designing, musicial directing, or composing. On top of his work with Catalyst, he also works for the renowned Phoenix Theatre, Defiance Comedy, Betty Rage Productions…and more. He also just started his own contracting company Redtail Home Renovations, so he’s pretty busy, Casey…like many of Dave’s lines in shows wrote this bio and is sure Dave wants to thank his wife and family for allowing him to still come play with us…and local bands.



Zachariah Stonerock is an Indianapolis-based actor and director and longtime collaborator with Catalyst.

This fall, he will direct Shakespeare’s Troilus & Cressida for Bard Fest. Love and thanks to Audrey.
