Recently highlighted on TV performing a featured number during the 6ABC Thanksgiving Day parade, the 30+ Shooting Stars members represent the 750 Upper Darby Summer Stage participants and are ambassadors of the program all year long. Hand-selected during auditions, the members rehearse for countless hours and participate for the pure joy of performing.
The Shooting Stars members are extremely experienced when it comes to performing. In addition to performances at Walt Disney World, NBC’s “Live from Longwood Gardens” Holiday Special and at Delaware County’s Rose Tree Park Summer Festival, the Shooting Stars take their shows on the road as an outreach service, entertaining the elderly throughout the Delaware Valley.
During this season of giving, the Shooting Stars provide a gift to audience members comprised of hours of rehearsal time with a finely produced and joyful show that will delight and entertain kids “from one to 92!”
