Pro basketball player Terri Mateer takes “A Kind Shot” in her one woman show


Terri Mateer’s A Kind Shot plays Catskill’s Bridge Street Theatre for three performances only, July 22-23-24, 2016.

Whether working the court or navigating life itself, former pro basketball player Terri Mateer has taken plenty of hits — but that hasn’t diminished her drive to score. A Kind Shot, the one-woman show she’s created out of her experiences, will be performed by Ms. Mateer herself July 22-24 at Bridge Street Theatre’s intimate Speakeasy in Catskill.

Fresh, brave, daring, and performed with an athlete’s grace and confidence (but none of the indulgent swagger), the 6’ 1” Mateer’s autobiographical show contains plenty of insider anecdotes and famous names that will appeal to fans of street, college, and pro sports. Along with her experience in these worlds, Mateer has also worked as a model, a stripper, a designer, and an actor. Raised by a single hippie mom and an African American surrogate father, and mentored by numerous others, she credits them with giving her the fortitude to confront the sexual abuse and harassment she’s experienced. Fortunately, it seems there’s been a happy ending for this girl who never quite knew who she was.

Terri Mateer (SAG-AFTRA). Terri has had the pleasure of playing Joseph in “Jesus Christ Superstar” (Rhinebeck), Olive in the female version of “The Odd Couple” (New Paltz), and in her hometown of Woodstock, she has been seen as Mona in “The Secret Lives of David Ives”, ensemble in Carey Harrison’s “Midget in A Cat Suit Reciting Spinoza”, Rosalind in “As You like It”, Vivian in “Lucy”, and Jill in “With & Without”. She has played Helena in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” Sergeant O’Hara in “Arsenic and Old Lace”, and Marianne in “The Miser”. In Rhinebeck, she was the gal in “The Full Monty” who dunked the rolling roll of toilet paper in the man’s bathroom stall. In NYC, she is the tallest actress to ever play Molly in Israel Horovitz’s “Line” at the 13th Street Theater Rep and brought out her FSU high tops to play Meredith in “Five Women Wearing the Same Dress” at the 78th Street Theatre Lab. She produced Eve Ensler’s “The Vagina Monologues” which brought in $12,000 for Family of Woodstock and Women in Need. She has written and performed two solo shows, “Going Public” and “A Kind Shot”. Day and night, she loves Brian, her great tall man who means the world to her. Someday she will knit a great fisherman’s sweater.

“A Kind Shot” will be presented for three performances only at the Bridge Street Theatre Speakeasy, 44 W. Bridge Street, Catskill, on Friday & Saturday July 22 & 23 at 7:30pm and Sunday July 24 at 2:00pm.
