A principal baritone with New York City’s Metropolitan Opera will be joining as summer company full of Broadway actors for Alpine Theatre Project’s 12th season, running July 6 – August 20 at the Whitefish Performing Arts Center. These professional actors will perform in ATP’s rotating productions of “The Full Monty,” “Rock of Ages,” and “Man of La Mancha.” ATP will also present a season-ending Gala Concert on Aug. 19-20.
“This may be the most powerhouse summer company we’ve ever had,” says ATP Producing Artistic Director, Betsi Morrison. “To add a principal baritone like Jeff Mattsey from the Metropolitan Opera to a cast full of Broadway veterans is just the icing on the cake.”
