Joelle Pfeil ‘17 – Matthew Gonczar ‘16 is your average teen. He goes to school, participates in extracurriculars, and values every minute of sleep he can get. But this year started off on a surprising note: he has scored his first large role in a Romeo Theatre Company show. He put a lot of effort into being incorporated in it; Gonczar shared that he spends three hours a day working on theater whether it involves rehearsing, helping with props, and other ways of getting ready for Fame. He got involved with theatre his sophomore year.
“Theatre is my family; I get along with everyone and we do everything together,” Gonczar said. “The people in theatre are not just someone you see in school or at practice. I get to hang out with them all the time, they all mean so much to me so I would definitely call them part of my family.”
He absolutely loves being with and around all of those in the company because all of them share the same interests he does.
“Most of the time its very fun and stress-free,” Gonczar said.
Gonczar also had many positive words to say about the director of the Romeo Theatre Company, Ms. Walls.
“Just from my own experiences, Ms. Walls is one of the best teachers at RHS,” Gonczar said. “She gets each person so well. And at practice shes not afraid to tell you what you’re doing wrong, and she always has the best ideas. She’s just an all around great person.”
Catch Gonczar, and the rest of the Fame cast, November 21 and 22 at 7:00p.m., and November 23 at 2:00p.m., to see the first Romeo Theatre Company production of the year.
