"I want to thank you for coming to put on the show for us.  It was really fun and exciting and really funny.  It had lots of details and pretty colors.  After seeing what it takes and what you have to do I've been thinking about being an actor instead of a teacher.  One thing I'll never forget is you two nice good actors.  You are the two best actors that came to my school.  Thank you again for coming!"  (Tiffany, Grade 4)

KRACKERJACK KLASSICS
is the series of plays, 14 in all, that Mark Bedell Wrote, Directed, Designed and Produced for the
KRACKERJACK THEATRE CO.

Mark Bedell has spent nearly 30 years bringing children and teachers the best, most spellbinding theatre experiences possible!   He (along with former partner Angelique Steelgrave) crafted every aspect of every production.  The two toured these productions for 14 years doing over 250 shows each year.

Each play was specifically, painstakingly created, with props, costumes, sets and music all unique to that production.  Unlike other theatre companies who bring only a curtain or a couple of flats and a stool or two, KTC specialized in fully-staged productions: gorgeous, elaborate costumes; large, colorful, eye-poppingly beautiful scenery that magically changed to present different locales; often a full sound-system with music!  Everything you'd expect to find in a Broadway Production... but on an elementary school stage and on an elementary school budget!

Now, Mark Bedell is available to YOU as a:
Writer, Director, Producer, Technical Director, Fight Director, Actor
or all of the above!

"You know what kids like.  You know how to make them laugh, but also how to regain their attention.  Some of your dialogue had us teachers in hysterics--nice touch!  I love the question & answer time; it allows students to see how many talents can be used cooperatively and helps them appreciate creativity.  I'd like to see two shows a year.
You are the best!" 
(Steep Falls Elementary School, Steep Falls, ME)
