The critically acclaimed off-Broadway hit “Matty: An Evening with Christy Mathewson” is coming to the Canyon Theatre Guild on Saturday, Jan. 5 and Sunday, Jan. 6.
The play, featuring talented actor Eddie Frierson, is the inspiring story of Hall Of Fame baseball pitcher Christy Mathewson. It is entertaining, enlightening and motivational. And, you don’t have to be a baseball fan to enjoy this play and all proceeds support two very worthy scholarships.

The Canyon Theatre Guild offers full scholarships based on financial need as identified by the Boys and Girls Club. Some 20 scholarships are awarded each year.
