GlenJM.com Archives Deluxe

I am planning on revamping GlenJM.com at some point over the Christmas break. I decided that since I have developed such an intense relationship with this blog I have hear, that GlenJM.blogspot.com will become your primary source for everything Glen J. Matthews. Kapiche?

Therefore, the News-Feed on GlenJM.com will be abolished, and the website will be tidied-up for easier access to the website’s information.

Thus alas therefore continuing, I present three months of Archives for archiving sakes…

On the Road with Neptune Young Company
October
5th, 2007
Last week, I began touring the Maritimes as a member of the 28th Neptune Theatre Young Company tour. The tour will take me to all corners of the Maritimes in the next 4 months as I (and my fellow cast-mates Kim Parkhill, Adam Bayne, Gillian Ferrier & Stage Manager Darcy “Cockshirt” Lindzon) present Liars & Bump in the Night to schools all over.

So far, so friggin’ good. The tour has been an absolute blast and has been getting some positive feedback. I have started a blog dedicated to the tour “Glen Matthews: Actor/World Traveler EXCITEMENT Blog!” @ GlenJM.blogspot.com Check it out and follow my progress as a rockstar for children!
