"I was impressed with your work at MASC from the clips I have seen (on YouTube).  They seem to have really learned the right moves and reactions to make this stuff look great!  We are very interested in talking with you about auditioning some of your talent for our upcoming projects."

"The Maine Academy of Staged Combat changed the way I approach theatre.  Taking Mark's classes helped me to understand the necessity of my body in a scene. Taking the MASC classes was a fun and safe way to learn a theatre skill which many actors in the field are sorely in need of."

"Mark is not only an amazing fight director who creates stunning and exciting fights but he is also a great people person.  He is amazing at handling difficult artists, placating temperamental designers and somehow making everyone happy.  I really enjoyed working with Mark;  A great artist AND a great guy!"

"When Freeport High School hosted the MPA One Act Drama Festival, we were requested by the schools participating to provide seminars on Stage Fighting, Scenic Design and How To Get Started In Professional Stage & Film Acting. Mark and Jaclyn at Maine Academy of Staged Combat were amazingly able to provide all of these seminars at a very affordable cost. It was a highlight of the festival."

- Tim Ryan
One Act Drama Director, Freeport High School, ME


"Creative and exciting fight choreography for everyone from the novice to the professional"

Dona Vaughn
Artistic Director, PORTopera, ME/NY

"I had a really great time working with Mark, he really taught me quite a bit as a fight choreographer,
lighting and stage director, teacher and friend. He is a very put-together, conscientious person,
who can adapt to any situation to help you understand whatever he is trying to teach you.
I only wish that I could be back in Maine and continue to work with (MASC)."
