Filled with fairy tale romance and a fearless young woman's quest for truth, the epic Broadway musical ANASTASIA plays in the Jeffers Theatre at HCT from December 1st through December 16th.
Returning to the stage in this production, as Tsar, Politov and Ensemble, is Matthew White.
White has lived in the area for over 20 years, having moved from California as a teen in 1996. He attended Governor's School for drama, and studied to be a Certified Nursing Assistant at Mitchell Community College. He is currently a self-employed caregiver residing in Statesville.
White made his Hickory Community Theatre debut as George in KINKY BOOTS, and then went on to appear as an Ensemble member in A GENTLEMAN's GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER. He has also appeared on stage at Theatre Statesville in A CHRISTMAS CAROL and CABARET, for which he received an Metrolina Theatre Association nomination. White relishes his role in the Ensemble, which he describes as "the backbone of the show," and is thrilled to be performing alongside his entire family in this production.
