Marlowe Weisman- Drama


Mr. Marlowe Weisman – Theatre Arts, Film & Yearbook Instructor
Marlowe Weisman received his BFA in TV and Film from the University of Arizona. After brief study at The Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute, Marlowe landed on staff at Walt Disney TV Animation, writing for “Disney’s Aladdin.” Over the years he’s written for such cartoons as “Ed, Edd ‘n’ Eddy,” “Animaniacs” and “Baby Looney Tunes” (for which he earned an Emmy nomination). He recently served as head writer on the newest episodes of “Mia and Me,” a girl’s action-fantasy now airing on Netflix and Nick Jr. He also co-wrote a German movie based on the “Letters From Felix” first-grader books.
In 2007, Marlowe started directing well-received afterschool theatre programs at his daughters’ schools in the Saugus Union and Hart districts. He joined the AEA family in 2012, staging such varied student productions as “Alice in Wonderland,” “The Mouse That Roared,” “The Little Mermaid” and “Monty Python’s Spamalot,” as well as original readers theatre remembrances of 9/11 and the JFK presidency. He also recently guided the AEA student newspaper to several local journalism awards.
As a local director, Marlowe staged the raucous “Jewtopia” and “Woody Allen’s ‘Play It Again, Sam’.” As an A.D., character actor and dramaturge, he has contributed to such productions as “A Few Good Men,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “The Graduate” and “M*A*S*H.”
Marlowe considers theatre performance essential for young people in building the confidence, discipline and focus they can carry into any profession. His proudest moments of the past five years have been watching his youngest actors from 2012 direct productions of their own before graduating in 2017.
