Meet the Artistic Director: Jay Schueller

Rejayschuellerturning as the Artistic Director for the winter production, Jay Schueller is excited to be working with this cast.  His previous shows from the Director’s Chair include “Noises Off” in 2016, “Don’t Hug Me” in 2015 and “All Because of Agatha” in 2009.  His credits in the role as Technical Director span every show that the Heritage Players have produced since 2005, having only missed one show with the company in his 10+ year career.

Schueller works full-time in technical theater for both school and community theaters including Totino-Grace, Forest Lake, North Branch, North St. Paul, and Pine City High School programs.  He joined the staff at the University of Northwestern, St. Paul where he has enjoyed building some large-scale productions like “Phantom of the Opera” and “Into the Woods”.  He is both excited and nervous about the upcoming “Mary Poppins” production at UNW, but always enjoys a challenge.

Schueller extends this invitation to anyone interested in learning more about Heritage Players, “This Saturday, January 28th is the first big set construction day for the upcoming production of “Nunsense”.  Heritage Players would love to invite more community members to join in the fun of working ‘behind the scenes’ of the community productions.  If you’d like more information about how to get involved – send us an email at or just drop in at the auditorium this Saturday and introduce yourself…. we’ll put you to work!”
