If you don’t know Sandy Hey’s name, chances are you’ve not attended at least one of the highly popular shows she’s produced in the Twin Cities including the long running Tina n’ Tony’s Wedding, Forever Plaid, Beehive or Smokey Joe’s Café.
Hey, the former Artistic Director and Producer of Hey City Productions knows everything there is to know about interactive theater. She’s made a remarkable career out of understanding what often fickle theatergoers want and delivering shows that meet their needs for fun and engagement. Because of her passion for teaching and mentoring, she has also been responsible for developing the careers of many interactive performers in town.
After 8 years of retirement from producing shows, Hey is making her own comeback as the Creative Producer of and Consultant to The Ultimate Pajama Party®, a show for which she shares a true passion and personal connection.
“I was pretty happily retired, focusing on my volunteer work in Florida and with Children's Theatre and Jeremiah Program here. When Tammy Hauser and Jim Sheeley with whom I’d worked in the past, approached me with the concept of The Ultimate Pajama Party, I was intrigued by the CELEBRATION of women moving forward. Why did I say “pretty happily” retired? Because I knew the right project could capture my attention and heart….and this was the one that did,” shares Hey.
Sandy brings her distinctive creative vision and producing know-how to The Ultimate Pajama Party®. She shares creator Tammy Hauser’s passion for a fun show celebrating female friendship, love, loss and redemption in a world where every turn and each triumph is shared and celebrated among girlfriends.
And, for women who are looking for a Tony ‘n’ Tina’s kind of interactive theater experience where they can laugh, play, eat, dance, and celebrate their friendships, all they have to do is join the party.
The Ultimate Pajama Party was created by Executive Producer, Tammy Hauser in partnership with Jim Sheeley of Broadway Across America. Sandy Hey is serving as creative consultant with script by James Detmar and Dawn Brody and direction by Ross Young. The show will run for four weeks January – Feb. 2013 at The Lab Theater in the Warehouse District of Minneapolis. Then it will move onto licensing, touring, and other commercial ventures.
