Mr. Skylar Ely
Grandview High School, Theatre Director
After participating in and adjudicating Thespian Conference through his high school and collegiate career, Skylar is thrilled to be rejoining the world of educational theatre. After receiving his degree in Theatre Education from The University of Northern Colorado, he moved to Orlando, FL and was a professional intern through Disney’s Stage Technician program. From Disney, he dove into the world or entertainment safety, becoming the head of safety for the Santa Fe Opera. Skylar was also apart of the stage management teams for The Boston Lyric Opera and the Arvada Center’s youth summer series. Most recently he was a high angle rescue instructor and rope access technician for various entertainment groups and utilities across the country. He is happy to rejoin the team of amazing educators at Grandview High School and provide students the opportunity to find alternate routes into post high school education.
