Matthew Hall: “Jinx”

Matthew Hall as Jinx

Why are you excited to be in Forever Plaid?
I’m excited for the chance to step into my biggest role yet and to belt out some seriously fun songs with three enormously talented guys.
What do you love most about portraying your character?
I can channel my own nervousness into Jinx’s nervousness, which really helps me make the character come alive. I also get to sing melody most of the time 😉
What attracted you to join an SBMT production? Why do you perform in community theatre?
I was mostly attracted to this show because of the great songs and because I already had the haircut. I perform in community theatre because it’s a safe place for weird people to be weird together.
What do you think audiences will be most excited to see in this production?
It’s a toss-up between “Crazy ‘Bout You Baby” and “Lady of Spain.”
Matt Hall is excited to perform in his first SBMT show! His favorite roles include “Rev. Parris” in The Crucible, “‘All aboard!’ guy” in The Mystery of Edwin Drood, and “Frightened Inmate #2” in New Warden. In addition to theater, he enjoys craft beer, properly-cooked scrambled eggs, and being a husband and dad. He would like to thank his beautiful, kind, and (very) patient wife for supporting him in his theatrical endeavours.
