Production Team Bios:

  • Heather Skelley (Director) Heather Skelley (Director) – The last time Heather directed a full production was in college and she made her actors cry before their performance. She decided she wasn’t cut out to direct and has mostly stuck to working onstage for the past 20+ years. After directing a staged reading of A Doll’s House for PSP’s Theatre in the Woods and absolutely loving it, she decided it was time to give it another shot. She is beyond grateful to the cast, production team, designers and the Executive Board for all of their support. She hopes you enjoy the show as much as she has enjoyed watching it all come together. Love and many thanks to Matt for sharing her with PSP (again).

She strongly identifies with PSP’s aim for inclusivity within its creative works. She values the inclusion of the marginalized, fully embraces volunteerism that brings transformation, and continues to create a legacy for a love of theatre.

Her experience includes scenic, props, lighting, and set dressing work with Cal Shakes, the San Francisco Dickens Christmas Fair, Brava for Women in the Performing Arts, Marin Theatre Company, more. As a multi-disciplined artist onstage and backstage, she believes in the theatre’s amazing life-changing power and has the arc welder to prove it.
