About Matrix School of Theatre
Matrix Theatre Company's School of Theatre challenges and encourages students to become creators of their own work by writing and performing original works. We believe that everyone has a story to tell and that the best way to learn is by doing. Therefore, the School of Theatre at Matrix has its own season where students perform shows they have, in most cases, authored themselves. These productions range from small showcases at the end of each semester of classes to longer running paying audience productions.
