Gazette feature on young 'Full Monty' actor

Gazette arts writer T.D. Mobley-Martinez tells the tale of 12-year-old FAC Theatre Company actor Mark Autry, who appears in The Full Monty as well as another production in town. (Mark is shown here with Nick Madson from The Full Monty.)

"It's amazing. I don't think I have anything after this," he says, his freckles shifting as he gooses his eyebrows for emphasis. "‘The Full Monty' starts again tomorrow."

In the past year, Mark's taken roles in at least four community productions, including TheatreWorks' "The Grapes of Wrath" and now, "The Full Monty," which opens Friday at the Fine Arts Center. That means rehearsals that start about 8 p.m. and last until about 11 p.m. Then it's home, homework and bed.

He shrugs when asked whether he's tired. "Not yet," he says of this recent collision of two productions, "The Full Monty" and "The Boy."
