Mark Roberts

Mark Roberts graduated from Lamar University in 1993 with a bachelor’s degree in theatrical performance. While Mark was at Lamar, he was an active and avid participant in the theatre department. Working on stage as a performer and offstage as a technician, like most theatre students, most of his time out of class was spent working on productions. In his first couple of years, Mark worked in the shop on the scenic crew and quickly moved into the crew chief position. Wanting to expand his skills after some time, he switched over to electrics, and likewise, headed that crew. On stage Mark performed in seven productions in his time at Lamar: Black Angel; The Voice of the Prairie; Lend Me A Tenor; Seascape; The Normal Heart; Shakespeare’s Lovers; and Into the Woods. In the fall of 1990 when Mark arrived at Lamar, the chapter of Alpha Psi Omega was defunct, but thanks to the leadership of Dr. Adonia Placette, with whom Mark studied under at Lamar, the chapter was reinstated as active, and Roberts went on to lead the chapter as its first president.
