Meet Steve Marois, one of our two fantastic ensemble members for True Believers! Steve, who has a day job in Higher Education Administration, has an odd obsession with Sailor Moon and Doctor Who!
How did you get involved in theatre? What is your first theatre memory?
In 10th grade, my friends made me audition for our school musical. That year it was Greece: a Musical Parody. Grease Lightning became a chariot; Sandy and Danny were Sandacia and Dannilaeus. Been hooked ever since…
How did you get involved in this production? What is your favorite thing about rehearsal?
I’m a big British Sci-Fi nerd and I’m friends with a lot of Vagabond members, so if the shoe fits, a stitch in time saves the bird in the bush from rolling moss.
What is the most nerdy thing about yourself?
I have all 200 episodes of Sailor Moon in Japanese and German.
Who is your favorite superhero? Why?
Sailor Saturn. She’s a BAMF, and could destroy the entire planet if she wanted to. She also has the coolest weapon of any of the Sailor Senshi.

Steve Marois is thrilled to be involved in his first Vagabond show, especially considering the amount of Doctor Who references in it. His previous acting experiences include appearances in Boston University Stage Troupe’s productions, such as Beauty and the Beast (Lumiere), Amadeus (Kapellmeister Bonno), and Poona the F@*kdog and Other Stories for Children (Cigarette Box, Aide, VCR, Sparky, Stagehand, Guard, Satan, Reporter, Angry Villager). He has never cried more than when he watched Episode 4 of Torchwood: Children of Earth.
