GAMTA is proud to have a high number of former students working within the industry. Today’s feature is GAMTA alumni MATT McKENNA. Matt trained with us from a young age before heading to London to complete his studies at Arts Educational Schools.
Matt has enjoyed a busy and varied career since graduating that has seen him perform in some of the world’s biggest shows and in some of the world’s greatest theatres! Matt has just completed the UK Tour of LOVE ME TENDER where he understudied and played the lead (pictured below) and has just returned from Paris where he was appearing in the classic musical SINGING IN THE RAIN. Currently Matt is appearing in the new ENO production of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical SUNSET BOULEVARD. The limited run production is now on at London’s Coliseum with Broadway and film star GLENN CLOSE in the lead role.
Previous roles include Riff Raff in THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW (European Tour), Raoul in PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (Her Majestys London), Gallileo and Britney in WE WILL ROCK YOU (Dominion Theatre London & Cologne), and Elektra in STARLIGHT EXPRESS (Bochum Germany).
Matt also got married recently to Lisa Darnell, who is currently appearing the UK Tour of The Bodyguard. We were very lucky to be present at the big day and we wish them both all the best and a very happy future together!
