"Jolene "Jojo" Bogard is the reason I come to the theatre and take classes. Her classes have boosted my confidence, and I think are the reason I got chosen for my schools ASB. Plus she's a lot of fun." -- Carlos (age 11)

HeyJojo Productions was founded in 2005 originally as a live events and television production entity. Jolene "Jojo" Bogard has been directing since she was 5 years old. Always one to organize the neighborhood kids to put on plays to whomever was walking by her house. After working in Hollywood for a number of years...I was looking for my next career. My step daughters fledgling theatre needed a stage manager and next thing I know, I was managing 6 casts of Annie for them. Soon, they offered me a job (which paid minimum wage)...and I thought...I could do this same thing, if I ever moved. And just like that....my husband got transferred to San Diego and I started my own theatre company. Its been a learning experience for sure. But these kids are so amazing. I decided to file my 501-c3 in 2017 and go Non-profit. And while, I can't get paid to get this theatre up and running...it is the most rewarding work I have ever done. I am proud to be a board member. Donating my time and efforts to creating these wonderful shows.
