Growing up, Mark Evans was gay, chubby and certainly not interested in the same hobbies as the ‘normal’ boys. He ensured people saw him as “The Performer.” This brought comfort, safety and…a bucket load of trauma to sing and laugh about later. Hide & Seek, a solo cabaret by the Broadway and West End performer, is a hilarious and touching show dedicated to anyone who seeks to bring their true selves to the surface.
Mark Evans is a renowned actor, singer and dancer with large variety of Broadway and West End credits to his name.
Born and raised on a sheep farm in North Wales, Mark was not like the other kids around him. Gay, chubby and certainly not interested in the same hobbies as the ‘normal’ boys.
Thankfully, he fell in love with singing; Wales is considered ‘The Land Of Song’ after all. Music became an escape from real life. Mark ensured people saw him as ‘The Performer’ and hid away every other side of him. This brought comfort, safety and….a bucket load of trauma to sing and laugh about in a cabaret three decades later.
‘Hide & Seek’ is a hilarious and touching show dedicated to anyone who seeks to bring their true selves to the surface.
Mark is excited to debut ‘Hide & Seek’, his first solo show in over a decade, at the South Orange Performing Arts Centre where he recently starred in the world premier musical The Last Supper delivering a tour de force performance playing twelve different characters to huge acclaim.
Through great music, fun stories and a glimpse into a side of him you have not before seen, ‘Hide And Seek’ will be a night of thrilling entertainment not to be missed.
