Meet Matt Graham - Carl Dad in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
Matt Graham - Carl Dad
What role do you play in the show?
I play Carl Dad- one of Schwartzy's two fathers. He is an extremely competitive coach, and will stop at nothing to see his daughter take the Putnam Bee!
What is your background in theatre?
I did a few shows for my high schools drama club, but some recent highlights include playing Horton in festival place's "Seussical the Musical" as well as getting the chance to work as assistant music director on the Walterdale Playhouse's production of "Nine" last summer!
This is my first production with ELOPE, and I'm SO excited to be involved in this show!
What is your favourite word to spell?
Mamihlapinatapai- "a look shared by two people, each wishing that the other will offer something that they both desire but are unwilling to suggest or offer themselves". So wonderfully succinct!
