St. Matthew Community Theater truly is a place where you can grow as an artist and become part of a welcoming, engaging family. But don’t just take our word for it! Below are some of the wonderful testimonials from members of past productions.

“I stumbled into SMCT’s audition room by chance in 2018 and am forever grateful! The people who create these wonderful and inspiring productions have become some of the greatest influences in my life and truly embody the definition of ‘community’. You will absolutely find a home on our little gym stage.
– Christine Janiak, Jesus Christ Superstar (2023)

“I have always had a love and passion for theater- I was expecting to sing, dance and act and do what I love- I wasn’t expecting the friendships and the community. You can expect to be inspired at SMCT!”
– Janelle Karlsrud, Bright Star (2022)

“Don’t be fooled by the venue. SMCT hosts incredible talent in the design team, performers, crew, and directors. And all they do is improve. Every. Show. If you’re looking to be moved by a family-friendly and high caliber production, check out a show here. If you’re an actor, designer, or a behind-the-scenes type, come and have your chance at making something wonderful with a supportive team in a friendly and safe environment.”
– James Ehlenz, Beauty and the Beast (2017)

“My husband Gary and I appreciate the creative outlet it provides, the spiritual aspect, and the friendships we have made. SMCT brings together people of all ages. With the guidance of our director, we work hard, putting our hearts into each rehearsal and performance. We also reach out to the community and beyond, providing food for the local food shelf, packing meals at FMSC, and donating proceeds to Sheridan Story. I am proud to be associated with SMCT.”
– Jackie Peterson, Big Fish (2019) & Gary Peterson, Jesus Christ Superstar (2023)
