Heath Hays

Heath Hays.

Heath was born and (mostly) raised in the verdant rolling hills of northeast Indiana. By middle school, he had burgeoning career portraying street urchins, in many permutations, at the local high school and community theatres.

This all changed in college. Leaving behind the limelight, he took the mantle of designer, and has been such ever since. After moving to Chicago in 2003, he has worked for too many theatre companies, collectives, ensembles, co-ops, and loose knit groups to name. And he had a good time in every show except one. 

With Strawdog, Heath has designed sound for Improbable Frequency, Big Love, and Conversations on a Homecoming. He has been a supporter of everything else.
