Just me talking about costume-y kind of stuff
From the Waco Tribune-Herald:
Actor with Waco roots offers theater scholarship, holds audition
by Carl Hoover email@example.com Sep 7, 2017
Actor-hair stylist Mark Capalbo, part of the company in the Tony Award-winning 2015 revival of "The Color Purple," will return to Waco this month to talk with theater students at McLennan Community College as well as audition local high school seniors for a theater scholarship he's giving.
The scholarship audition will take place between 4 and 7 p.m. Sept. 19 at the Lee Lockwood Library and Museum, 2801 W. Waco Drive. Those who wish to sing or dance as part of their audition should bring music for an accompanist. For information, call Linda Haskett at 776-0707.
Capalbo was often seen on local stages when growing up in Waco, performing with the Waco Children's Theatre and McLennan Theatre. He had just graduated from Sam Houston State University in 2008 when he joined the national tour of the Broadway musical "The Drowsy Chaperone," which performed at the Waco Hippodrome in 2009. He also was a dancer in the national tour of "9 to 5," then switched to hair styling with "Elf The Musical" then the national tour of "Warhorse." His Broadway credits include "Phantom of the Opera," "On The Town," "Motown The Musical," "Hearts and Lights with the Radio City Rockettes," "Bandstand: A New American Musical" and "The Color Purple."
He also has a healthy list of television credits, working as key hairstylist for Season 5 of FX's "The Americans" and Amazon's upcoming "The Dangerous Book For Boys" with Bryan Cranston. He's also styled for HBO's "Vinyl," CBS's "Billions" and "Bull," and Netflix's "Wormwood."
While I'm here: It's not for a scholarship, but younger actors, from kindergarten to 12th grade, who would like to register and audition for the Waco Children's Theatre fall and holiday productions can do so Sunday, Sept. 10, between 2 and 5 p.m. at Lee Lockwood Library and Museum. The first WCT production will run the week of Nov. 12; the second, the week of Dec. 3.
PS: Another credit that Carl's article failed to mention but that impresses the hell out of me, is that Mark did hair for one episode of The Get Down on Netflix.
