Mark Wegman is the founder and President/Artistic Director of Scene One Theatre.  He, along with his wife Tracy, began the group in 2002 and finally found the performance venue a home in 2005: an old beauty shop in downtown Jefferson City, Missouri. With the help of a few friends, he turned the space into a black box theatre and opened to the public with the first show, "Psycho Beach Party," in June of 2005. Mark directed the production and performed in the show.

Mark Wegman participated in theatrical productions throughout grade school and high school. He went on to the University of Missouri – Columbia (Mizzou) and studied theatre, acting, directing and playwriting from 1989 to 1992. During the summer of 1991 he took a paying gig as an actor doing summer stock theatre with the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre in Clinton, Iowa. He performed in shows that were staged from June thru August of that year. In addition to performing at Mizzou, he also acted with The Maplewood Barn Community Theatre and Columbia Entertainment Company while living in Columbia, MO.

He returned to his hometown of Jefferson City after college and resumed theatrical activities with theatres in Jefferson City. He has been involved with The Little Theatre of Jefferson City, both acting and directing since 1984 and has served multiple terms as a board member for the organization.  He also performed with the Capital City Players, throughout the 1990's. 

He is currently employed with Missouri River Regional Library in Jefferson City.  He has worked for their Outreach Services/ Bookmobile Department since March of 2000.  Additionally, in 2009 he became the reader's theatre coordinator for the library; producing 2-3 productions a year, all in an effort to raise funds for the Missouri River Regional Library foundation.

"The theatre" has been and remains a love and a driving force in Mark Wegman's life. He enjoys it. He feels it is one of the things he does best. Throughout the years, he has acted and directed in countless theatrical productions through a variety of venues.  However, his number one passion is Scene One. "The magic... it's all in the space," he says.
