Name: Ryan Weiss
You know him from: The Producers, Death of A Salesman, Bye Bye Birdie, The Sound of Music, Annie, Cabaret, A Chorus Line, Sweeney Todd, Rent
Currently: Attending the University of Florida majoring in Criminology and Law (Pre-law) and planning on double majoring in Musical Theatre BFA
Future plans: After obtaining my Undergraduate degrees, I plan to audition on Broadway for approximately six months. If nothing comes up, it's off to Law School!!! At that point, I plan on opening my own law firm and following my passion, theatre, in my spare time.
Favorite Starstruck moment: During A Chorus Line, my character, Alan Deluca, was from the Bronx. In one of my lines, I said, "And I'm from the Bronx." Immediately following this, one of the audience members pumps his fist in the air and screams "GO BRONX!!!" It was a hilarious moment.
What has Starstruck meant to you: Starstruck has been my outlet for artistic expression. In addition to this, Starstruck has helped me find my passion and gain friendships and skills that will never be forgotten. My performing ability has doubled or tripled in the two years that I was at Starstruck and has truly turned me into the performer I am today. Through the various performances I have truly realized I can't live without theatre and that this is my true passion.
