An actor, director, and playwright, Mark recently retired after teaching college mathematics for more than 30 years. He realized a lifelong dream when he moved to the beautiful Wisconsin Northwoods last June. Mark is a veteran of over 100 different shows, having done everything except choreography and musical direction. This will be his fourth season with Tommy O’s Playhouse.
For the 2016 season, Mark has adapted William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet for six actors, and will direct and be playing the part of the Friar. He will also be Sidney Bruhl in Deathtrap. As he did last year, Mark will once again be adapting several scenes from Shakespeare to be performed at Tommy O’s Renaissance Festival this coming September, in which he will direct as well as act.
As always, Mark would like to thank his daughter, Brittany, for re-kindling his passion for the theatre after taking a nearly four decade-long hiatus post high school. A heartfelt thanks to Tommy O, as well, for giving Mark the opportunity to be part of Tommy’s new and upcoming Playhouse.
