Kyle Holmes

Director of Theatre Arts

Kyle Holmes joined GBHS in 2011 as an English and Journalism teacher. After his first year, he had the opportunity to return to his roots, and succeeded the late Jim Prichard as the school's third Director of Theatre Arts.

Growing up in El Dorado County, he spent most of his high school years in the theater at Union Mine High School under the tutelage of Pete Miller. After studying musical theatre at the University of California, Irvine for several years, Holmes finished his Bachelor of Arts in English at the University of California, Davis where he also received his single-subject teaching credential in English, and a Master of Arts degree in Education.

Over the past eight years, Holmes has directed over 20 productions with Theatre at Granite Bay, including the amateur world premiere of The Unfortunates. In 2018, he was one of four theatre arts teachers in California selected to serve on the California Department of Education’s Visual and Performing Arts Standards Advisory Committee (CDE VAPA SAC), re-writing California’s K-12 VAPA standards for the state. In 2019, he was recognized as Teacher of the Year by the Roseville Joint Union High School District.

During the summer, Holmes teaches theatre arts at Sugarloaf Fine Arts Camp through the El Dorado County Office of Education, where he has spent the past fifteen years working to help students further their artistic passions.
