Matt Nieman (Paul Sheldon)
Matt made his debut on the JCCT stage in 1985 as Edmund Pevensie in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Since that time, he has been honored to play parts such as Sweeney Todd and Ebenezer Scrooge with the Bedford Little Theatre; Puck in A Midsummer Night’s Dream and JJ Peachum in The Threepenny Opera while at Concordia Chicago; and Alan in God of Carnage with the Mill Race Players. His roles at JCCT have included many unsavory and villainous characters which is ironic since he has also worked as the youth minister at Immanuel Lutheran Church for the past 27 years. And even though he has run 27 marathons and exercises regularly, this role has been the most physically taxing in his career. He wants to thank his family, his church, and his community for supporting the arts and for understanding that who he is on stage is not who he is in real life.
Jeremy Hendrix (Sheriff Buster)
Jeremy has a long history with JCCT. He first appeared here in 1994 as part of a touring show of The Good Doctor with Hanover College. A few of his favorites since then on the JCCT stage: God’s Favorite, The Nerd, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Moon Over Buffalo, Baskerville, and Picasso at the Latin Agile. Jeremy’s also directed for JCCT, including Murder at the Howard Johnson’s, Aaron Slick from Pumpin Crick, and All My Sons. He loves all things theater and has also been involved with ACTS for several years with more than 10 credits there in acting, directing, and set building.
