Mr. James Kaiser
Mr. Kaiser is the Chair of the Reagan Fine Arts Department and the Technical Theatre Director at Ronald Reagan High School.
Mr. Kaiser is originally from colorful Colorado and moved to San Antonio in 2011 to become part of the Reagan faculty and theatre department. He grew up on a small alfalfa farm on the eastern plains of Colorado near Greeley, CO. In high school, Mr. Kaiser partcipated in band, theatre, and was editor of the school paper. After receiving his B.A. from Western State University of Colorado, he pursued a career in technical theatre.
Prior to his arrival in San Antonio, Mr. Kaiser was part of the world of entertainment professionals. Over the course of 25 years, he held various positions in over 200 productions, worked for several theatre companies and managed to squeeze in a few regional show tours as well. Mr. Kaiser has served in almost every off stage and on stage capacity there is in theatre, sometimes all at once (HA!). At Reagan, Mr. Kaiser has grown the technical theatre program from three classes to five classes and strives to keep Reagan's theatre program up-to-date in technology. When he's not running around the auditorium with his hair (what's left of it) on fire, he enjoys reading, movies, playing with his dog, and flying virtual commercial airliners all over the world.
