The Stagetime Team

  Jackie Lee Stone
Producer/Event Planner

Jackie’s 20+ years in live events runs the gamut — corporate, non-profit, festivals, conferences, one-day, multi-week, indoor, outdoor — she even managed an Ice Palace for 3 weeks. And she haaaaaates cold weather!

Jackie’s career started out in civic festival land, working for the St. Paul Winter Carnival. Next, she tackled the corporate + convention universe at Design Group, and then shifted to the non-profit sector at Children’s Cancer Research Fund, where she managed the production of two key annual programs; leading committees, soliciting sponsorships, developing communication campaigns and managing event + show logistics.

In 2011, Jackie took a leap of faith and started Plate Spinner Productions, so that she could balance family + work in the best way possible – working from home! Sample projects include managing the University of Minnesota presence at the State Fair; producing (and planning!) multiple non-profit galas in the Twin Cities, producing groundbreaking + grand opening events for the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board; producing the annual Taste of the NFL and numerous Super Bowl 52 programs, and producing a number of events for corporations around town — Target, Best Buy, Boston Scientific and UNFI to name a few. She has a unique skill set as a planner + producer, so she can shift as needed to accommodate budgets and client needs.

In 2020, she joined forces with the State of MN + North Star Events, and was a leader in the COVID-19 testing + vaccine roll-out and implementation across Minnesota. From October 2020-April 2022, she proudly served (w/ countless frontline heroes) alongside her friends at the MN National Guard as the Logistics Lead at the Inver Grove Heights testing site.

When Jackie is not working events, you can usually find her in the Starbucks drive-thru, helping out at her family’s food truck, running around a Mpls lake, or taking in a local concert with her family + friends. She loves the Twin Cities in the summer!
