Matthew Bruffee

I grew up in Middleboro and have been a member of Central since 8th grade when I received confirmation in the Church. Always active in the Church from grade school to high school, I participated in many church activities, youth group, sang in the choir and pops concerts, rang in the bell choir, taught Sunday school and helped with many roast beef and spaghetti suppers over the years.

 

I took on the role of Administrative Coordinator this past July of 2020 and love to serve the church now in this capacity. I hold two degrees, a Masters of Fine Arts in Nonprofit Management for the Performing Arts; from the City University of New York at Brooklyn College and a Bachelors of Arts in Theatre from Hofstra University on Long Island.

 

I lived in New York City after college for 26 years and worked in the entertainment industry producing many live theatrical productions and gala fundraisers.  I held various administrative management positions at Carnegie Hall, City Center Theatre, Trisha Brown Dance Company, Bay Street Theatre Festival, Broadway Cares Equity Fights AIDS/Dancers Responding to AIDS, Cortez & Co. Contemporary Ballet, Jack Morton Worldwide, Thomas Martin Events, and Bette Midler's New York Restoration Project.

 

I moved back home to Middleboro in 2006 and since then I have utilized my talents at the Burt Wood School of Performing Arts as a teacher of acting, voice, diction, and stage production and directed/designed over 35 shows for the school everything from Aladdin, jr. to Little Women.  

 

I also have worked in Boston for Kensington Investment Company in private real estate, MIT Sloan School in recruiting, and at William Rawn Architects. Matt has also been the President and Executive Producer for the Rogue Theatre Company which produced live stage productions for 7 years in Taunton.
