Marcus Klinger has been a professional pianist for the past 30 years, a regular on Bay Area Stages since the age of eight, and a teacher of performing arts since 1997. He holds a Shellie Award for Best Actor in The Producers for Diablo Light Opera Company, and a San Francisco Bay Area Theatre Critic Circle Award for Best Featured Actor in Hairspray! for Contra Costa Musical Theatre.
