Marc Sanford (Associate House Manager) is very happy to be a Chance Theater Resident Artist. In 1994, Marc did a production of Little Shop of Horrors at Rancho Santiago College (now known as Santa Ana College), where he met future Chance founders Oanh Nguyen and Jeff Hellebrand. Marc first performed at the Chance in A History of the American Film as Mickey (plus 4 other characters) and soon became a resident artist. In 2004, Marc had to drop out of the company due to the discovery of a tumor about the size of a ping-pong ball on his optic nerve. His surgery was successful, but he moved up to the Seattle area to stay with family to recuperate. While he was up there, he attended the Seattle Film Institute where he received a Filmmaking Certificate. Marc has been a resident artist since June 2008.
