MCPS 6th Grader Shines on Stage in ASF’s “To Kill a Mockingbird”!

Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School student Matthew Klinger is currently cast as Jem in  ASF’s production of To Kill a Mockingbird.  The play runs March 8-24, as well as, school fest performances.  It is double cast and there are six students from local schools in the production. Auditions were last fall and Matthew started rehearsals with his fellow cast mates in February.  

An old pro, Matthew began his acting career three years ago and has built quite a resume including local television commercials, Oliver! and Big River at Faulkner Dinner Theatre as well as Fables Then and Now at Cloverdale Playhouse. ASF involvement includes Merry Wives of Windsor, ASF Academy, Capital City Players and Camp Shakespeare.  Matthew’s mother Kelley said “Matthew has always had a knack for entertaining his family at get-together’s by putting on ‘productions’ where he has each of his cousins perform something, whether it be instruments, plays or just singing.  He started taking acting classes at ASF in fourth grade and his acting took off from there.” Matthew can be seen next in his role in Cloverdale Playhouse’s Androcles and the Lion, May 3-5. He will begin rehearsals as soon as To Kill a Mockingbird wraps. 

Matthew is a sixth grade honor student and student council vice president at Montgomery Catholic. He is the son of Ken and Kelley Klinger.
