Matthew Tomlanovich Memorial Scholarship Fund ($50-$2,500+)
Matthew Tomlanovich, a longtime professor, director, actor and mentor in the Dallas theater community, died Sunday, October 19, 2014 after battling complications ensuing from an MRSA infection that left him paralyzed and hospitalized. He was 54 and spent his last moments surrounded by his wife of twenty-one years, Claudia Stephens, a professor of costume design at Southern Methodist University, their sons Raisch and Eli and friends.

The Michigan native, who had earned a masters from the Central School of Speech and Drama in London and an MFA in Acting from California Institute of the Arts, taught at SMU, University of North Texas and UT Dallas, and was acclaimed for his work with Junior Players, which began in 2000 and continued until his sickness prevented him form working further. He also revived the Margo Jones Theatre in Fair Park in 2013 as a venue for emerging theater organizations. Stephens and her husband enjoyed fly-fishing, museums in Paris, hanging out with family and particularly liked the way their minds “intertwined,” as she put it, over crossword puzzles. (Previous by Nancy Churnin, Dallas Morning News)

Matt directed Junior Players’ Shakespeare productions from 2000 to 2006, and continued to teach in the advanced acting programs through early 2014. He touched numerous young lives in Junior Players during that time. In honor of Matt’s legacy, Junior Players is proud to establish the Matthew Tomlanovich Memorial Scholarship Fund, which will ensure that Matt’s vision of continued greatness in the arts lives on through future generations.
