He's adorably odd and very passionate about the high school musical that he does every year. Don't get him on his bad side though (which comes out of him A LOT), because he can be scary. If you are quiet, follow his directions, and try, he'll love you.

Copys the DVD move for move, but gets the money to make his shows look like broadway. Often cares more for looks than talent. Obsessive and quirky.

For anyone out there who is saying that G is copying or isnt original then you obviously havent seen one of his productions.He makes everything his own and always puts and interesting spin on his shows.

G always picks these odd shows that other high schools don't do. But that's a cool thing. I learn a lot about theatre.

Mr. Giresi has a driving passion for the theatre arts. He will ALWAYS produce the finest show, while teaching student actors the craft! No other high school can compare.. I've learned soooooooo much.

Great director. He's very detailed and organized when running a show but still gives his actors room to develop their own character. I've learned a lot.

G has no originality and gives students no real passion for learning. He copies the blocking and the choreography from the tapes of the broadway shows he "directs". Every movement. It's ridiculous. He teaches nothing.

Your high school has one of the finest musical theatre teachers in the USA. Competition exists in the arts (think TONYS, OSCAR, EMMYS), SO DEAL WITH IT!!!
