Here’s the deal.

I’ll tell you my story, you tell me yours.  I need to do this before I forget…Hey!  That’s the name of my musical memoir!  I am funny, irreverent, and sometimes my voice cracks on high notes.  What can you expect from an 80-year-old swinging Nana?

You have a question.  I have an answer.  Ask Hamlet.  He asked me…

“Sally-Jane, To be or not to be?”

“Honey,” I said, “Relax, have a cup of tea, and come to the workshop.  All will be revealed.”

And so it will be.

In this workshop, actor Sally-Jane Heit shares scenes from her life in order to inspire and support others to take the center stage in their own lives.  Born in Brooklyn as one of eight children, she was the one who didn’t fit in.  From the womb, she sang, danced, acted – creating agita for her mother and her siblings.  Lacking the courage of her convictions, she “went along” with traditional script as a young adult.  As the marriage faded and the children grew, she escaped.  On Broadway, Off Broadway, movies, television…she was a late bloomer, and she’s still blooming and sharing her talents with audiences all over the country.

Today Sally-Jane Heit tours the country giving back to causes close to her heart by donating performances to theaters, universities, conferences and community organizations.  Her ambition is to inspire and support others to take center stage in their own lives.  She makes her home in Great Barrington, MA and Sanibel, FL.

This event is presented with The Berkshire Festival of Women Writers and will take place in the Drawing Room.  Seating is first come, first served.
