Mark Cassius Biography

Mark Cassius is a singer/songwriter, dancer, actor and musician who has shared his gifts on cabaret, concert and theatrical stages around the globe. He is probably best known for his work with the world-renowned a cappella group, The Nylons from 1997 to 2005. During this time he sang baritone and penned some original pieces for the group.

A musical theatre veteran, he has appeared on Broadway in Jesus Christ Superstar (reprising his Stratford Festival role), Ragtime (Toronto) and Shenandoah (Toronto and Broadway). Mark’s other Stratford credits include My One and Only and Oklahoma! He also held roles in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (Elgin Theatre and Canadian tour) and Miss Saigon (Princess of Wales Theatre).

During 2013 Mark has been building momentum (and garnering glowing reviews) on the concert circuit throughout Ontario. In April 2013, he lent his talent to Sheridan’s 40th anniversary music theatre alumni celebration as one of several alumni performing music from their graduating decade.

Prior to attending Sheridan in the 1980s, Mark attended high school in Mississauga after spending his formative years in Trinidad. A visit to the college on a high school field trip opened his eyes to Sheridan’s music theatre program.
