Matthew Fliegauf,of Hopkinton, has been regularly shuttled back and forth to NYC in the past several months. This 12 year old has broken into the professional acting world after attending NYCinMA, a musical theater summer intensive that brings all of its instructors in from NYC to train participants in dance, acting, voice and audition technique. When asked about his experience with the program, Matthew said, "As a result of this training, I got a great manager who has sent me to many auditions in NYC, including an audition for my dream show, Billy Elliot, the Musical. I was also called in for the Elf national tour, Pippin, Treasure Island, and several other shows. Though NYCinMA focuses on theater, it also prepared me for my first television job, the lead in an episode of a well known cable show."


Matthew's mom, Heidi, has been the one primarily driving him to these auditions. "Every time I ask him if he knows what he is going to do or what is expected of him, he rolls his eyes at me, like every 12 year old knows how to do, and says, "I know mom, this is what I learned all summer. Believe me, I know what to do!" He isn't nervous when he goes into the audition room because the program prepared him for all of the possibilities and gave him the self-assurance that any actor needs in order to be successful."


The Metrowest area can be proud that it is cultivating the stars of the future. The NYCinMA program that Matthew attended is holding auditions for 2013 in Framingham on March 24th. The auditions are by appointment only and the program only accepts 22 participants. Visit NYCinMA.com or email auditions@NYCinMA.com for more information.
