(THE CHAMPIONS PROJECT)
For sixty years Mark has plied his craft on stage and screen beginning his theatrical career at the age of eight as an actor. A man who wears many hats; Mark added director, producer, playwright, set designer, sound designer and stage carpenter to his body of work.
Twenty years after beginning that journey he went on what he believed was a divergent path, becoming a Physical Therapist. He began focusing on pediatrics while working for the Muscular Dystrophy Association in the mid 1980’s and later became a school based therapist. In 2007 these seemingly distant paths crossed when he was given the opportunity to create the Theatre for Everyone program at the Horizon School (now Pillar Care) in Livingston, NJ.
This school which serves profoundly involved special needs children saw the possibility of making arts education to benefit this grossly underserved population. Under Dr. Liebert’s creative hand they brought this to reality partnering with the Papermill Playhouse Conservatory and creating their Lend-a-Voice Program. Mark wrote and/or adapted thirteen musicals to be performed by and for multiply handicapped children for which Mark garnered several awards including: ASAH Related Services Provider of the Year 2009; New Jersey School Boards 2011 Award for Innovations in Special Education and the NJ Theatre Alliance/NJ Council on the Arts Cultural Access Network Project Innovator Award for 2012-13.
Mark moved to south Florida in 2021 where he continues his thespian pursuits, appearing in film, television and on stage. As director and co-producer of Giblie Productions he took their production of Tom Dugan’s “Wiesenthal” to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2023. He is thrilled to be partnering with Jeremy Quinn in the creation of THE CHAMPIONS PROJECT.
