Never straying from what he loves to do, Peck School graduate Kyle Sternad has accepted a role in society but continues to sing and act out of passion for the performing arts. An IT professional at a local Milwaukee business, Kyle has found his outlet in theatre and continues to push for better roles. The sky is the limit for Kyle.
Kyle began singing in choir in elementary school. When he attended high school, he kept up with singing, participating in his high school’s show choir all four years. “I found out I liked to sing so I just kept doing it.”
Kyle chose to attend UWM for the computer science program but quickly changed his mind. He soon began hanging around the music building, finding that he really liked the environment and the professors in the Peck School of the Arts. He decided his sophomore year to take up musical theatre as a major.
Currently, Kyle is participating in the Skylight Music Theatre’s production of Les Miserables that is happening November 22nd to December 29th of 2013. He is an ensemble member and he is also playing the role of a foreman and an army officer. In the near future, he will also be participating in a charity production of Jesus Christ Superstar with the In Tandem Theatre here in Milwaukee.
In the future, Kyle will be moving to Los Angeles to take part in productions with a peer of his, but for now he is focused and determined in his roles. “I have a running bit of inspiration that I try to live by every day. It’s ‘Do or do not, there is no try.’ A quote from the greatest master of all time, Yoda.”
