Marc created a theatre workshop program for youngsters (ages 9-15) as hosted by the Children's Theatre of New Orleans at Ursuline Academy and most recently Jesuit High School's first Drama Camp. An intense study through the steps of acting, focusing on the Basics, Talent Recognition, Audition Prep and Performance culminating in a production/staged reading as a final task. The camp was performed with the assistance of Jesuit Philelectic students and alumni where they each were responsible for a daily lesson on Improvisation, Body Movement and Scene-work/monologues all aimed at allowing a young person to focus on the varied disciplines involved in making the stage permanent part of their lives.
