All of Grown Ups and Downs is about Marcus, well, and Mardra. And Quinn. And the many people that his life touches. But you want the short version, eh? Alright.
Here’s Marcus’ bio for his book release: Marcus Sikora is a 26 year old creative soul who has Down syndrome and lives in Omaha, Nebraska. He has acted on stage with local and national companies as well as written a short one act.
His first animated short and book for children is Black Day: The Monster Rock Band. When he’s not watching theater, singing, or working out, he’s contemplating the sequel. You can connect with Marcus and his adventures via Twitter @marcusmusical, Facebook/GrownUpsAndDowns, and BlackDayBook.com
But what’s the real about Marcus?
The real Marcus could eat peanut butter and jelly every day for the rest of his life and be Fine with that. His favorite “myself” pastimes are watching Broadway and tearing papers. His favorite “doing” pastimes are “Broadway List,” Protools, and Voice lessons. He loves his two cats, Uncle Red and May. And he looks forward to meeting Marilyn Monroe in heaven.
That’s a pretty good snapshot – but if you want more – just poke around. He’s pretty fun and a good teacher, too.
