About About
Kyle Michael James is an actor based in Madison, WI. He was born and raised in the small farming community of Darlington, WI. Kyle began his acting career in Kindergarten for a school video commercial helping to advertise the new vending machines in the cafeteria and known as the kid that said “Wow, what are those?”

Since an early age Kyle loved to perform and soon found his place on the stage and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville in 2017 with a BS in Health Promotions and a BA in Theatre. While at Platteville, Kyle was awarded two scholarships for his performances as Jesus in Godspell and Felix Turner in The Normal Heart. In addition, Kyle was also recognized for his academic theatre work with the Bea Brecker Memorial Scholarship in 2016. He performed in seventeen productions while studying at UW-Platteville and received an ACTF Irene Ryan Nomination for his portrayal of Stanley Kowalski in A Streetcar Named Desire. In other areas, Kyle was recognized as a Health and Human Performance Honor student for his ongoing commitment to health promotion.

When not doing theatre, Kyle serves as a Human Resources Specialist with the Army National Guard. He first enlisted in October 2013 and received a Certificate of Achievement for epitomizing the Army Values that same year. The following year he was selected to sing the National Anthem at Advanced Individual Training graduation and most recently was awarded an Army Commendation Medal for meritorious service in the Wisconsin National Guard.

Today Kyle continues to do theatre and serve his country. He actively participates in CrossFit and coaches part-time. This coming summer Kyle is fortunate enough to be a part of the WORLD PREMIERE of Hephaestus as Hermes. Please refer to "Upcoming Productions" for Kyle’s other future performances.

August 16-24

Written by: Nathan Fosbinder

Directed by: Catie O'Connell

Performed in: Play Circle at the Memorial Union, 800 Langdon Street, Madison WI

Description: Hephaestus is the story of the God who dared to be different.  Cast out by his mother, the jealous and powerful Hera, and desperate for the love of Aphrodite,  he reaches into his soul and identifies his strength as an artisan to win his spot back on Mount Olympus...where, it turns out, the "lame" God was one of the most powerful assets.  Soaring contemporary music and the Greek traditions of comedy and tragedy mesh together in this production, the first full staging to come out of the Wisconsin New Musicals Cycle.
