Growing up in Tulsa, OK, homeschooled until college, Micah developed a deep passion for the arts because of a severe lack of skill in anything else. Classically trained in Acting, Piano, and Voice, he earned his BFA in Acting from the University of Oklahoma, having previously studied musical theatre at the University of Central Oklahoma and Tulsa Community College. While at OU, Micah specialized in Shakespeare and the use and history of music in theatre, acting as performer and composer for several productions. His article about the use of music in Shakespeare's comedies, "Food of Love," was published in an academic theatre journal. He is currently working as a professional acting intern at Florida Repertory Theatre.
"However, it is actor Micah Weese who is an amazing standout in the show... His spot-on timing and impeccable delivery keeps the fast-paced show moving and at times the audience cheering at his work." - NBC-2, Fort Myers, FL
"Micah Weese’s Feste... gets to deliver the best lines and does so with ease. Weese’s singing grounds the performance as well, and provides one of the most memorable moments in the production." - Norman Transcript
"Weese was excellent as Feste... [bringing] a crucial cool, yet caring detachment to the part." - The Oklahoman
“Weese is exceptional as Scrooge... at first booming and commanding, then becoming softer and more transparent in his emotions... The change the audience is waiting for is a delight to experience alongside him.” - Scene and Hurd
"Weese as Catesby, Richard's fixer-in-chief... give[s] a solid performance." - Curtain Call

During the coronavirus lockdown I was fortunate enough to join the company of TSMGO: actors/artists all over the world putting on virtual staged performances of the complete works of Shakespeare. I was cast in two productions, now available for free on Youtube: Alencon in Henry VI Part 1 and Slender in The Merry Wives of Windsor.
