Mark Hansen is returning to AST for his third season. He designed and built the set for AST’s Alice in Wonderland and also appeared as Banquo that Scottish Play. Born and raised in Little Rock, Mark makes his theater home at the Arkansas Arts Center. He has found previous Shakespeare experience under the Broadway Bridge in North Little Rock, as the title character in Pericles and Petruchio in Taming of the Shrew These were some his most challenging and rewarding acting experiences–thanks to Red Octopus and Brad Mooy. Another highlight was playing Edmund in King Lear with his good friend Jimmy Brewi as Edgar and Bob Hulsey as Lear. Thank you AST for the opportunity to work with the wonderful people here.
