Junior Cody Leveck participates in Improv tryouts on Aug. 24. Leveck is a theater officer and works backstage, as well as acting in performances.

For every meet-up, audition, and performance upon Legacy’s shining stage, Legacy’s Theater officers dedicate hours of their time towards intense planning and setup. One of these officers, junior Cody Leveck, enjoys balancing both theater and AP classes. 

“I absolutely love the stage, it’s just where I find my peace in school,” Leveck said. “I love the whole community we got going there.”

As a theater officer and student, Leveck spends hours of time engaging behind the scenes at Legacy. Upon the week of Aug. 22, theater students participated in improv auditions, fall show auditions, and a theater cookout.  

“Most definitely a hefty workload, but can you really call it work if you enjoy it,” Leveck said.

Leveck works closely with other officers, as well as the theater directors, to host all events and shows. Mr. Jeremy Ferman appreciates Leveck’s work ethic and commitment to the program.

“Most definitely a hard worker, a great leader and performer,” Mr. Ferman said. “A very efficient and dedicated member of our theater, as a student and officer.”

Alongside his work within theater, Leveck also balances studying to maintain high grades throughout his four AP classes.

“You don’t realize it, but you spend over 300 hours working on shows,” Leveck said. ”I am waking up around six a.m. and getting home around ten p.m. I either immediately sleep or stay up to do homework.”

With the COVID complications in 2020, Leveck’s journey to theater was rocky. He began his journey to the stage as a sophomore when he gained the role of Pantalone in the Servant of Two Masters. Now looking toward possible auditions at the Arlington Improv Comedy Club, Leveck advises anyone interested in theater to be observant and learn from other actors. 

“Get connected anyway you can,” Leveck said. “Not getting a part may feel defeating, but showing up shows your director that you care, you’re committed, and you get to learn a ton from the actors you watch.”
