Crystal Theatre celebrates Matt Chiappetta
We love you and will always remember you…you left us too soon.
Apply For the Matt Chiappetta & George Lombardo Scholarships
The Matt Chiappetta scholarship sponsors a Crystal Theatre student that displays many qualities of Matt's. Past winners have included: Ariana Tsirakidis (2023), Luke Selva (2022), Joseph Derr & Elysia Ring Howell (2020), Sean Tagariello (2019), Sophie O'Hara (2018), Rhianna Ring-Howell (2017), and many more! This year, we've received a generous endowment that allows us to make the George Lombardo Scholarship, in honor of the late writer, director, performer, and drummer that brought beautiful memories to Crystal Theatre. The application process for both scholarships is the same.
You must fill out the application below prior to your audition. You must include an essay in your application, describing a characteristic you share with Matt Chiappetta. After submitting your application, please see the list and choose from one of the following acting scenes to perform at your audition. Auditions will be held on April 1st, 2023 at 4:30pm.
