Shooting Stars director, Kevin Dietzler, spoke about the magic of this production. “Working with the Shooting Stars is one of the greatest joys in my life. We commit ourselves not only to bring a professional-level performance to every stage we travel to, but to spread the Summer Stage magic and mission to audiences all over the region. We have an amazing group of young performers coming together from schools all over Delaware County who put in a lot of time and selflessly share their talents to make our ensemble shine.”

Dietzler also extended his thanks to the Upper Darby School District for once again allowing the Shooting Stars program to utilize the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center for the performances.
