Weiss Theater Culture


  • We believe there is a place for ALL people in theater.  

  • We are excited to learn about you, to learn what strengths and talents that you possess, and to show you the many ways they can be utilized in theater.

  • We treat everyone as equals.

  • We communicate with respect, patience, and kindness. (even when there’s conflict)



  • We work in teams more often than working as an individual.

  • We put the team’s needs ahead of our own.

  • We work together to create work that we could never create on our own.

  • We are constantly learning new skills that will help us be better collaborators, because we know that is one of the most important attributes of being a successful adult.



  • We believe in you, care about you, and will challenge you to grow.

  • We expect you to work to the best of your abilities every single day.

  • We believe that excellence is not achieved without failure. Fail forward!

  • We are rooting for you! Every single day. We want to see you succeed.
