Season three of Knights Do That, UCF's official podcast, returns with its first guest, Peter Weishar from the College of Arts and Humanities.

Weishar is the director of UCF's themed experience program, which includes an theatre MFA with a themed experience track, which launched in 2019, and an M.S. in themed experience, which launched in Fall 2021. This spring the first cohort of the themed experience track in the theatre MFA program graduated.

As UCF is training the future workforce of world builders and storytellers to fill the demand of this multi-billion dollar industry, Weishar — who has decades of experience in the arts — is helping reimagine what themed experiences encompass. Here he shares some insight.
