Matt Jurick (he, him)

Board Member

Matt is a member of the board for Struts & Frets Theatre Company. Matt’s first-ever paying job was running lights for his local summer stock community theatre, and that was the summer that changed it all. Specializing in lighting design, directing, and stage management, Matt has designed, directed, or stage managed over 40 different theatrical productions, from middle school through collegiate, even dabbling a bit in regional theatre, before ultimately deciding his career was destined for K-12 education.


Of all those productions, he is most proud of his work light designing for The Fantasticks, directing The Laramie Project, and stage managing The Falsetto Trilogy. His top-three dream shows are Hair to light design, Sweeney Todd to direct, and The Duchess of Malfi to stage manage.
