Vocal Technique / Musical Theatre Acting
For nearly two decades, Matt Corica has created innovative, boundary-pushing scholastic theatre with a commitment to the development of his students as young actors and young people. As a singer, Matt has performed on tours of South America and Europe, in a world premiere at the Washington National Opera, on TNT’s “Christmas in Washington” special, and with stage and screen legend Carol Channing. With experience in music, technical theatre, and Shakespeare, he seeks out projects that challenge actors and audience alike across a variety of works across the theatrical spectrum - plays from Caryl Churchill to Anton Chekhov to Mary Zimmerman; musicals from Cole Porter to Stephen Sondheim to David Yazbeck. As a director and educator, Matt strives to create a positive and safe rehearsal environment with a commitment to the dignity of his actors, instilling a spirit of collaboration and shared responsibility that has become a hallmark of his programs. Matt holds a degree in Music with minor concentrations in Shakespeare and Dramatic Literature from The George Washington University.
