ABOUT ME

Morning star shine, the earth says "Hello!"

 

Welcome! My name is Matthew Weidenbener; I am an actor, artist, and educator living and working in Chicago!

 

I received my BFA in Musical Theatre from Indiana University in 2018 and moved to the Windy City shortly after.

 

I have been involved in the arts since I was 10 years old. 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 in the 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 and choreographing todays youth throughout Chicagoland.

 

Outside of performing, I enjoy hiking, a nice craft beer, and a great thrift find! Feel free to browse the site for production images, media, resume and contact information. 

 

Thanks for visiting!

-Matthew
