MATTHEW MORRISON

Before receiving his BA in Performance and Communication from St. Lawrence University, his Masters in Acting from The American Repertory Theater Institute at Harvard, and his training at the Moscow Art Theater in Russia. Matt was voted “Loudest” in high school – he particularly loves encouraging The Young Shakespeareans to be as noisy as possible.  Credits include "The Night of the Iguana" and "James and the Giant Peach" at ART in Boston, "A Small Group" at the Hudson Theater in Los Angeles, and "The Little Things" on HBO Max as well as on the big screen. Matt joined The Young Shakespeareans in 2018, co-directing and serving as fight choreographer for "Macbeth", helped launch TYS' online program, co-directing The Young Shakespeareans of John Adams Middle School's production of "Romeo & Juliet" in Spring 2020, and will launch TYS' Virtual Program there co-directing "A Midsummer Night's Dream" in Spring 2021.
