Director/Playwright: Sasha d'Or

Marie Jones


Marie commands the stage the moment she makes her entrance. Whether playing a femme fatale or a comic genius, your long lost aunt or the Chief Inspector, Marie always has the audience in the palm of her hand. You name it, she can play it.

A graduate of the theatre program at Eastern Michigan University, Marie first caught the public eye in her many roles where she played the Sponberg Theater.

But that was just the beginning. For fifteen years Marie has been engaged with P.T.D. Productions. Acting as producer in their recent "Beyond Therapy," Marie has either been on the stage or behind the scenes in what seems like 90% of the funniest shows that have passed through Ypsilanti. Whether painting sets, creating costumes, working as a trustee, directing or acting, she has been perpetually busy at her artistry. Mixed Company Troupe is thrilled to have such a talent added to our players.

Marie was most recently seen as Vera, in PTD's production of Auntie Mame.  Some of her favorite roles include: You Can't Take It With You, An American Daughter. Grace and Glorie, Talking With, A Delicate Balance,Three Sisters, Look Homeward Angel, and Come Back To The Five And Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean... to name but a few. 

Marie is very excited to be involved in the innovative theater design of Mixed Company Troupe's productions and you will definitely want to catch her tour de force performances. She currently stars in The Wrong Mark, where she creates so many tiers of mischief that audiences find it contagious, in Brother Husbands, where her command of the domineering and delightful CK has audiences sitting on the edge of their seats, and in Pass Me a Weapon, Please. In this show Marie's duplicitous character morphs four times, keeping pace with plot twists and turns. Only a strong performer can pull this off and Marie does just that. She'll keep you keep guessing--just who is this Delilah and what is she really up to? In May, 2011, Marie returns in two new works: Hidden Trunks and Fresh Mown Love.

And if that's not enough... check out Marie in these new works. She plays a CIA agent in both Saddling Her First Spy and Poison on the Rocks. And in The Killer, The utcher and the Wayward Corpse, you'll get to see Marie as a chief inspectorm interrogating mobster's daughter, Izzie, played by Erin Osgood.
