Penn State Love Stories: A Twin And Theatre 100

Matthew Schoenberg took Theatre 100 in fall 2011 when he met the love of his life…almost. Instead of meeting her right off the bat, Schoenberg was paired with her twin, Elizabeth Landon, on a skit project. Little did Schoenberg know, that skit project would become much more.

After being assigned the skit, Schoenberg and Elizabeth decided they needed to practice in front of an actual audience, and what better option than Elizabeth’s twin sister Charlotte? This was the first time Schoenberg and Charlotte met, but their friendship was only beginning.

Their friendship continued until Charlotte invited Schoenberg to her family’s football tailgate. After that, they began having feelings for each other, which grew until February. Schoenberg got her a hamster and they started dating soon after.

After graduation, Schoenberg and Charlotte dated long distance for almost a year and a half. Schoenberg lived in Philadelphia, while Charlotte relocated in Boston. In 2012, Schoenberg made the move to Boston, and they moved in together in summer 2015.

Over Labor Day weekend, Schoenberg took Charlotte to Shelburne Fields in Vermont for a date. The pair was talking about all the great memories they had made together when Schoenberg made the best one of all. He proposed to Charlotte at sunset. She said yes, and the couple is planning their wedding.

For Charlotte, the Penn State connection brings her family together. She is a fourth-generation Penn Stater whose grandparents spent their wedding night at the Allen Street hotel.

“We both feel it’s all come full circle and thrilled to have met one another at such a ‘happy’ place like Penn State,” she said.
