Monts, who is taking acting classes at IUPUI, plays Barnaby, a clerk in Vandergelder's store who sneaks out to New York City with fellow clerk Cornelius Hackl to find adventure - and their first kiss from a woman.

In the lead roles of Dolly Gallagher Levi and Horace Vandergelder are Laura Kelley, of Irvington, and Jonathan Kratzner, of Bloomington, both of whom are making their GSC debuts.
"The Matchmaker" marks Burton's second production with GSC; in last fall's "A Midsummer Night's Dream," he also helped direct and played Peter Quince, leader of the Rude Mechanicals troupe and author of "Pyramus and Thisbe," the "play within a play" performed not-so-smoothly during the wedding celebration for Theseus and Hippolyta. "The Matchmaker" marks the Garfield Shakespeare Company debuts for Baker, Madden, Monts, Routier, and Verdouw.
