Alley Conservatory Student
Matthew Martinez

Alley Conservatory graduate Matthew Martinez has done great things since leaving the Alley Theatre last year. He was accepted to the Acting BFA program at Montclair State University in New Jersey and has already been cast in two undergrad productions—a rare occurrence for a freshman.

“I discovered abilities that I did not know I possessed,” Martinez told us. “The things I took away from the Conservatory have stayed with me years later… it affirmed my ability to create real art on stage.”

Martinez’s Acting Professor Heather Benton said she “was immediately aware that he had trained in a program that gave him a sophisticated understanding of what it is to be present and available in space and time.”
