Shooting Starz Productions began with a childhood dream. Steph Caron, wrote and directed her first original play at age 12. She gathered neighborhood children, including her siblings, to be the actors. Each production would benefit a different charity.
In the years following, Steph continued to write original productions. Her mother helped her write her first business letters at age 13 to begin looking for a performance venue. In 2006, Shooting Starz Productions was founded and the group began donating admission from performances to Feed My Starving Children. The non-profit theatre group has performed at a variety of venues including Steph's childhood backyard (2004-2005), Brookdale Shopping Center (2006-2010), Champlin Ice Forum (2011-2012), Servant of Christ Lutheran Church (2013-present), Lincoln Elementary School (2016-2018).
Shooting Starz Productions has been performing well known musicals in most recent years. Cinderella (2016), Oz (2017), Annie Jr. (2018), Peter Pan Jr. (2018) and currently Beauty and the Beast Jr. which will performed in January 2019. Shooting Starz performed their first ever Family Cast, in the spring of 2018, in which parents could act in the show with their children. Shooting Starz Productions has continued to donate to FMSC during our annual summer musical.
