My name is Matthew Weidenbener; I am an actor living and working in Chicago!
I recently graduated from Indiana University with my BFA in Musical Theatre in 2018!
I have been involved in the arts since I was 10 years old, falling in love with theatre at the age of 12. Nothing can make you feel more present than being onstage. Not only do I have a passion for performing onstage, but I am a strong believer the in power of Theatre for Young Audiences and I have a passion for youth theatre education. For many years, I have been a part of TYA productions, and now I find myself teaching theatre and dance to todays youth.
Outside of performing, I enjoy hiking, a nice craft beer, and hanging out with my dog, Lucy. Feel free to browse the site for production images, media, resume and contact information.
Thanks for visiting!
