Mr. Randy Lewandowski
Mr. Lewandowski, is beginnng his ninth year here at Wylie High School. Since his last name is sometimes difficult for students to remember or pronounce, he also is known as Mr. Lew. Mr. Lew received his bachelor’s degree from Chadron State College, a known teacher's college located in the northwest corner of Nebraska. He has served as a technical director and designer for various theatre companies during summer months. While teaching in Houston high schools, he was recognized for musical theater excellence by Houston’s Theater Under the Stars (TUTS) Awards where he and/or his students were nominated for Best Direction for Disney’s Beauty and the Beast (2005) and as Best Scenic Design in Gershwin’s Crazy for You (2006). While teaching at Wylie, the Dallas Summer Musical Theatre Awards recognized the production of Hairspray (2015) where the cast and crew were one of eight (of the 57 schools) competing to receive a nomination for Best Musical as well as Best Scenic Design. Two years ago, Courtney Neuwirth received the Excellence in Scene Design Award by The Schmidt and Jones Awards sponsored by Lyric Stage for Wylie’s production of Peter Pan (2017). Last year Courtney and Karan Gosai were nominated in two categories, Best Scene and Best Lighting Design, for their work in our production Footloose (2018). This year Mr. Lew will be teaching all of the technical theatre classes as well as overseeing the technical direction of our performances.
