Mark Douglas MacIntyre

Magic Circle Mime Company

After completing his university studies in Theatre Arts, Mr. MacIntyre began his professional acting career in 1974 working variously as an actor, playwright and director in a number of regional theatres in the West and Midwest. In 1977, following an opera production in which he served as an assistant stage director, Mr. MacIntyre was approached by the Music Director of the Spokane Symphony and offered the opportunity to create and perform a touring educational concert for symphony orchestra. This program proved so singularly successful that it soon led to invitations from other orchestras.

With his creative partner, Maggie Petersen, Mr. MacIntyre formed the Magic Circle Mime Company in 1978 and since that time they have created and performed concert programs with orchestras throughout the United States, Canada, Asia and in Europe. Mr. MacIntyre’s North American appearances include Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, The National Arts Centre of Canada and numerous appearances at The Kennedy Center for Performing Arts. International appearances include the Beijing Music Festival, Shanghai International Children's Festival, Taiwan International Children's Festival, Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, Tokyo Philharmonic, Taipei Symphony Orchestra, National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra, West Australia Symphony Orchestra, Singapore Symphony Orchestra and the Palau de la Música de Valencia.

In addition to performing Mr. MacIntyre has created and led workshops in theatre and music for numerous public and private schools, youth orchestras, The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and in 2010 for the U.S. Army School of Music.
