Headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Future Productions, LLC, is owned and operated by Denise Wallace & Craig Heitkamp. Formed in 1995, Future Productions has produced both state and national pageants in over 38 states. In 2002, Future Productions became state directors for the Miss Universe Organization, producing the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA state pageants for South Dakota. The following year, the Miss Universe Organization invited Future Productions to produce the Minnesota state pageant as well. In 2005, the Wyoming state pageant was added to the Future Productions family, and shortly after in 2006, Colorado was added. In 2007, the Miss Universe Organization asked Future Productions to become the state directors for the Wisconsin state pageant. Then in January of 2008, Future Productions was named the directors of the Iowa state pageant. The addition of Iowa made Future Productions, LLC, the first state directing organization to produce six state pageants for the Miss Universe Organization. During the Spring of 2010, Future Productions added North Dakota to it's Miss USA and Miss Teen USA stable of pageants, establishing their unprecendented seventh state franchise from the Miss Universe Organization.


The Miss Universe Organization (MUO) uses its global grassroots reach to empower women to be self-confident and strive to be their personal best. MUO believes that every woman should be “Confidently Beautiful.” The MISS UNIVERSE®, MISS USA®, and MISS TEEN USA® beauty pageants provide an international platform through dedicated partnerships with charities, sponsors, and brands around the world. During their reign, our winners are given the tools to personally and professionally enrich others by providing humanitarian efforts to affect positive change, all while developing their personal career goals.
