Marc Wayne Productions

about us

I remember watching, as a young kid, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Donald O'Connor, Sammy Davis Jr., and Bugs Bunny, and thinking how cool these cats were. And I remember saying to myself, "When I grow up, I want to be right there! I want to be right smack dab in the middle of where dreams were made!" 37 years down the road and I look back at my foot prints and where they have been and...Wow! I am here. Dream after dream after dream...and I'm smack dab right in the middle of it! I have been blessed with an extensive and varied background enriched with stage, film, tours, video, conventions, intensives, master classes, etcetera, that has enabled me to bring a wonderful skill set to my work. I look forward to sharing all I can to affirm purpose in people and helping transform that confidence into the performance of art and life.
