An Elegant Legacy

The audience is in for a treat with this production. The cast numbers six and the talent level is off the charts. It's no exaggeration to call these young singers "veterans of the stage" even at their age. Professional to the core, their love of the old standards familiar to their parents and grandparents are performed with heart. It's exciting for the entire company to be appearing in the new Orpheum Annex Theatre.

MARK PAWSON is excited to be part of this production in the new Orpheum Annex.
Mark’s first singing experiences were with a boys’ choir in rural Ontario.  They were quite renowned and at an early age, he experienced singing solos in such places as St. John the Divine in NYC.
 
After performing in a community theatre production of one of his favourite musicals, Jesus Christ Superstar, he stopped resisting the urge and became a full time actor/singer in Toronto.  Mark has performed in many shows including South Pacific, My Fair Lady, Carousel, Falsettos, Brigadoon, Can-Can and Baby. Although Mark’s first love has always been singing, he also loves to act for the camera and has appeared in over 30 television and film projects including Psych, Painkiller Jane, Dead Like Me and StarGate Altlantis and SG1. 
 
He loves the outdoors, being surprised, wonderful friends and on fair to rare occasions, a good belly-laugh.
 
He feels in excellent company, thanks Larry Enns for the opportunity and hopes you enjoy the show!
