Meet the Production Team: The Wedding Singer!

Wedding Singer

These people are the artistic driving force behind this summer’s show! Meet Matt, Jess, and Caroline!

Matthew Sherman (Director) This is Matthew’s third Moonstruck production. You may recognize him as the tenacious Joe Vegas (FAME) or the plotting Caldwell B. Cladwell (Urinetown, the Musical), but will be filling the role of Director this time around.  Recent credits outside of Moonstruck include Dickon in The Secret Garden, John the Baptist/Judas in Godspell, and Mercury in Olympus On My Mind.  Other noted roles include Jean Valjean (Les Miserables) and Linus (Snoopy!!! The Musical).  In his spare time, Matthew can be found counting large sums of money and muttering to himself.  He is proud and honored to be part of this production team and cannot wait to get started!

Jessica West (Music Director) Jessica graduated in 2005 with a BA in Music Education. Her love of music has led her to conduct high school choral groups, teach beginning and intermediate pianists, and research about how to best teach reading music notation. Now armed with a M.Ed. in education, Jessica teaches at the Arlington Children’s Center, where she is developing a music curriculum for young children focusing on musical play and improvisation. Jessica spent many of her formative years on stage in community theater productions, and is very excited to be back, albeit behind the piano.

Caroline Fonseca (Founder) Caroline founded Moonstruck in 2006. Since then, she graduated from Smith College with a degree in Film Studies & Theater, and just returned from a 2 year stint in Edinburgh (That’s Scotland!) where she completed an MSc in Film Studies and danced in ballroom competitions all over the UK. Caroline has performed in and worked on over 50 productions both here in Massachusetts and in the United Kingdom but her favorite ones are the Moonstruck ones 🙂
