Eric Olson

Eric Olson, Theater Director

Music, acting, and being creative are what define me. From the time I was young, I had a desire to perform and share the arts with people. Playing the piano, guitar, singing, and songwriting transformed me into the person I am. This love for music spurred my excitement for performing and led me to have a passion for theater as well as film work.

With over 20 years of acting experience in theater and commercial work, I first obtained my Bachelors Degree in Communications with a minor in Film. During this time I had the privilege of teaching and directing my own theater program through the City of Golden Valley for the past 9 years.

This passion for teaching and love for exploring the creative side of theater as well as all the creative outlets that English branches into, led me to complete my Masters Degree in English Education with an emphasis on Communications, Arts, and Literature at the University of Minnesota.

I am thrilled and humbled to be a part of Holy Family community and promise to bring my love for teaching, directing, and working with students every day!
