Mark Reis

Mark C. Reis – is pleased for the opportunity to become an associate member of the Music Theatre Guild. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Mark earned his BFA in Ballet/Musical Theatre from The University of Utah, and then moved to New York City to begin his career as a dancer. Summer Stock, Regional Theatres, European Tours (42ND STREET choreographed by Jon Engstrom), National Tours (CHICAGO with Charlotte D’Amboise, Jasmine Guy and Obba Babatunde; FUNNY GIRL starring Deborah Gibson; and JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR with Ted Kneely and the late Carl Anderson) and finally Broadway (with a bit of temp work and catering smattered in between) all seemed to be nice steps that led him from one memorable experience to another. Theatre by the Sea (KISS ME KATE with David Engel, GEORGE M! and LA CAGE AUX FOLLES) North Carolina Theatre (HELLO DOLLY!, GYPSY, and PIRATES of PENZANCE with Terrance Mann) North Shore Music Theatre (OKLAHOMA!) Pioneer Theatre Company (A CHORUS LINE, MY ONE AND ONLY, ON YOUR TOES all directed and choreographed by Patti D’Beck) Radio City Music Hall (THE EASTER SHOW), Goodspeed Opera House (PAINT YOUR WAGON choreographed by Tony Stevens), Paper Mill Playhouse (RED, HOT, and COLE choreographed by Andy Blankenbuehler) and finally the Schubert Theatre on 44th St. in the Broadway Company of FOSSE (with Broadway legends Ann Reinking, Ben Vereen, Bebe Neuwirth, and your very own Jane Lanier). All of these experiences were wonderful opportunities, shows to be a part of, and brought with them a long list of valuable friendships. In Los Angeles, Mark has worked for Reprise (ON YOUR TOES directed by Dan Mojica, choreographed by Lee Martino, and starring Stephanie Powers), Music Theatre West (THE PRODUCERS with your very own Michael Kostroff and David Engel) and Music Theatre Guild (KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN choreographed by Jane Lanier). Mark continues to choreograph, teach tap, theatre dance and yoga, has discovered the art of writing and storytelling, and has become a licensed massage therapist. He takes extreme pride as a new father to his and his partner Phil’s two and a half year old adoptive son Bodhi. Life keeps him busy, but Mark is always thankful for the opportunity to stay connected with his first true love and passion – performing.
