About Stagecrafters

Stagecrafters really began in the 1930s and continued into the early 1940s. At the start of World War II, the group ceased production of plays. In 1950, the J.C.C. Board of Directors brought together a group of 50 people to organize activities for young adults. Out of this emerged a theatre group, once again called STAGECRAFTERS. The first play, Goodbye, My Fancy, was produced in April of 1952, and from that time the group grew into a successful theatre organization.

Over the years Stagecrafters has won many Orchid Awards given by ACT Cincinnati and also awards from OCTA (Ohio Community Theatre Association). Our 2016-2017 season was no exception.

Our group is always looking for people to work behind the scenes, whether it be in set construction, public relations, painting, costuming, sound, or any of the other myriad activities that go into making up a total production. The experiences and associations you find in community theatre can be very rewarding. If you are interested in becoming part of our group, please complete the contact form below. It is not necessary that you have experience, just a willingness to help!

We are grateful to our audience for their wonderful support over the years and look forward to continuing this important relationship in the coming years.

We encourage you, your family, friends and neighbors to join us in celebrating our 66th continuous season!

Presenting our 66th Continuous Season

HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES adapted & dramatized by Tim Kelly from the classic Sir Arthur Conan Doyle thriller.

Holmes' most spine chilling mystery is placed in a modern setting in this version with suspense, humor and terror. Sir Henry is heir to the vast Baskerville fortune, a legacy that comes with a family curse - death at the fangs of a horror that prowls the moor. Only Holmes can stop the beast. While mysterious lights signal Baskerville Hall and the hound terrifies the countryside, the sleuthing begins and suspicion falls on sinister servants, butterfly collectors, ladies in distress and escaped convicts. Cast includes Clint Bramkamp, Julie Jordan, Elaine Michael, Samantha Morrissey, Andrew Shamblin, Kent Smith, Jeff Spadafore, Rose Vanden Eynden, Jim Waldfogle & Lee Anne Waldfogle. (Presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.)

October 21, 27 & 28 at 8:00 p.m. and October 22 & 29 at 3:00 p.m. 2017.


Set in a small Texas town in anytime, U.S.A., Daddy's Dyin' concerns the reunion of a family gathered to await the imminent death of their patriarch, who has recently suffered a physically, as well as mentally, disabling stroke. In essence, however, it is not the story of the impending demise of the father or the drafting of his will, but of a rebirth of the spirit of the family unit. Without becoming ponderous, losing a sense of humor or pandering to timeworn cliches about Texans or Texas drawls, the story shares many elements of a good summer novel: it's a fast, delicious, easy read with funny moments, tense moments, touching moments, and characters you care about. - The Hollywood Reporter Presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.) There is some adult language. Cast includes Jamie Ball, Sharon Cardona, Dana Davis, Brandon Dunphy, Jessica Faye, Lora Pateras, Kent Smith & Cathy Woodruff. February 10, 16 & 17 at 8:00 p.m. and February 11 & 18 at 3:00 p.m. 2018

JAKE'S WOMEN by Neil Simon.

Jake, a novelist who is more successful with fiction than with life, faces a marital crisis by daydreaming about the women in his life. The wildly comic and sometimes moving flashbacks played in his mind are interrupted by visitations from actual females. Jake's women include a revered first wife who was killed years earlier in an accident, his daughter who is recalled as a child but is now a young woman, his boisterous and bossy sister, an opinionated analyst, his current wife who is leaving Jake for another man, and a prospective third wife. (Presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.) The cast features Elizabeth Beatty, Jessica Faye, Beth Marthaler-Griffin, Darren Lee, Kaitrin McCoy, Shannon Mahoney & Lauren Woodiwiss.
