Not only will the entertainment be superb but we are raising money for our Education and Community Engagement programs as well.” […]”One of the smartest young actors in the business, Matthew Morrison also has that classic manner about him, in many ways reminiscent of a young Marlon Brando, James Dean or Montgomery Cliff. And, even more than those beloved icons, he can dance and sing.” ( Matthew Morrison is no stranger to musical theater, vocal performance and dance, which he studied at New York University’s renowned Tisch School of the Arts.
