"Weidenbener was a great choice for the wonderfully naive bridegroom Robert Martin. He brought an air of love-struck innocence to the role."
“Weidenbener is a comic dancing, singing delight!”

THE DROWSY CHAPERONE
Welcome! I am a recent graduate from Indiana University with his B.F.A. in Musical Theatre in 2018 and have recently relocated to Chicago, IL! I have been involved in the arts since he was 10 years old, falling in love with theatre at the age of 12. Nothing can make you feel more present than being onstage. While I enjoy all types of theatre, I am a strong believer the in power of Theatre for Young Audiences and the impact of youth theatre education. For many years, I have been a part of TYA productions, as well as teaching theatre and dance to todays youth. Outside of performing, he enjoys hiking, some nice craft beer, and hanging out with his dog, Lucy. Feel free to browse the site for production images, media, resume and contact information. Thanks for visiting!
Matthew is thrilled to join STAGES ST. LOUIS in their 2019 season of Grease (Ensemble/Roger , Sonny & Johnny Casino u/s) and Man of La Mancha (José/Fight Captain) running July through October 2019!
