Marquette Stankowski has worked as an actor, teacher, and director for more than 20 years. He is currently the artist-in-residence at New Albany Primary School. In his role, he develops and leads two signature experience programs in which all students in two grade levels participate. The Carnival of the Animals is the first grade experience that culminates in a dance and poetry performance. The second grade experience, The Journey, combines music, poetry, dance and visual art with the school’s second grade science curriculum. It also culminates with a performance at New Albany’s McCoy Center for the Performing Arts.
Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Marquette’s professional background includes performing and teaching theater courses, public speaking, and film making at the middle school, high school, and university levels. He holds an MFA in Acting from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a BA in Theater Arts from Marquette University. Before moving to Ohio, Marquette interned at the Milwaukee Repertory Theater and was Fine Arts Chair and Drama Department Chair at the University School of Milwaukee (USM). His directing credits at USM include Macbeth, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Sound of Music, Pygmalion, and A Month In The Country, After Turgenev.
