Matthew Swanson (Martin Van Buren) is happy to be back with JustArt Theatricals after his turn as The Favorite Son in last summer’s AMERICAN IDIOT. He comes from Owatonna, MN and has performed in local theatres around Southern Minnesota. His favorite credits include THE LITTLE MERMAID (Chez Lousi) and SPRING AWAKENING (Otto Lammermier) in MCCC Academic Theatre Company's production. He dedicates his love of theatre and the arts to his teachers and mentors- Shelly Fitzgerald, Becky Mohr, and Betsy Cole.
