StarKid Productions[]

Beatty met the members of what is now StarKid while collaborating on plays through Basement Arts, the university's student-run theatre organization. Their first play was based on The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, in which she played Gollum's Right Hand. The show succeeded in developing a working relationship among the StarKids-to-be. At that point, there was no concept that they were in some sort of troupe — they were just friends with each other in the School of Music, Theatre & Dance.

In 2009, Jaime featured in A Very Potter Musical starring as Ginny Weasley which sold out its four performances at UMich. A recorded version of the show that was posted on YouTube for family members to watch went viral and StarKid Productions was created with Jaime as one of it's founding members.

Jaime has since gone on to become one of the most prolific members of Team StarKid featuring in 13 musicals, 3 national tours, 2 concerts, 2 sketch shows and 3 web series'. Jaime has also aided in constructing props for StarKid shows such as creating signs for Beanie's in The Guy Who Didn't Like Musicals, as well as creating Schwoopsie's flower in Firebringer.

Jaime has featured in every StarKid musical (with the exception of Ani: A Parody, which ran concurrently with The Trail to Oregon!) and Nerdy Prudes Must Die, as well as featuring in all three StarKid national tours, the reunion concerts A Very StarKid Reunion and StarKid Homecoming and three web series' Movies, Musicals, & Me, Nightmare Time and Nightmare Time 2. Jaime also served as associate producer for VHS Christmas Carol Live!.
