Matthew Antoci |They/Them/Theirs
Matthew grew up in a small town in the Appalachian foothills outside Flowery Branch, Georgia. Some of their most memorable theatre performances include Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, et al. in I Am My Own Wife and multiple credits from Connecticut Repertory Theatre, including If We Were Birds (King Pandion), Shakespeare in Love (Fennyman), As You Like It (Adam), The Cherry Orchard (Simeonov-Pischik), The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (Station Policeman/Reverend Peters) and Our Country’s Good (Reverend Johnson). Matthew likes to wear many hats creatively: they sing, devise, direct, and produce their own work. Matthew directed a student-produced Much Ado About Nothing on the UConn Storrs campus, and recently served as dialect captain in CRT’s production of Curious Incident. Having grown up as gay and genderqueer in the Deep South, their passions range from reimagining classical texts through a queer lens to creating high-octane, lip sync performances in drag.
