You might also hear Mr. Victor crooning around the Vancouver area with his one man show; “Moonlight Serenade” as it is a tribute to the big band era of music and to the singers who made them famous. He is married to the incomparable Ms. Kristie Marsden, who is his guardian angel and best friend. Enjoythe show!
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!
