ATTENTION _ THERE WILL BE A PERFORMANCE SUNDAY MAY 19 at 3:00. CHECK BACK HERE FOR POSSIBLE MAKE-UP PERFORMANCE! 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 2010-2011 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 61st continuous season!

Presenting our 61st Continuous Season
Death Defying Acts by David Mamet, Elaine May & Woody Allen, directed by Cynthia Emmer
This long-running Off Broadway hit features the work of three gifted playwrights. David Mamet's "An Interview" is an oblique, mystifying interrogation. A sleazy lawyer is forced to answer difficult questions and to admit the truth about his life and career. In "Hotline" by Elaine May, a neurotic woman with enough urban angst to fill a neighborhood calls a suicide crisis hotline late one night. The counselor who gets the call is overwhelmed - it is his first night on the job. In Woody Allen's "Central Park West", a well-to-do psychiatrist has just discovered that her best friend is having an affair with her husband. She has invited the friend over for a confrontation after getting thoroughly soused. Meanwhile, the husband is about to run off with a college student.

"...in the time of old age" by award-winning Canadian playwright Gord Carruth, directed by Dee Dunn
Two elderly gentlemen, a Jewish widower and his friend, an Irish World War II veteran, both with little time left to live, unexpectedly come into a fortune. With their new status and the help of a beautiful lawyer they have some fun pulling off a brilliant sting on a bank manager of questionable integrity and morality, all to the benefit of older people. The cast features Mike Moskowitz as Reuben Ludlow, Dennis Blom as Mickey Flaherty, Sharon Rose Tyahur as Isolde Trampler, Bob Buchtman as Tony Manucci, Wendy Lindsey Head as Anna Collins and Fred Hunt as Clarence Stickley.

Eleemosynary by Lee Blessing, directed by Michael L. Morehead
Staged with utmost simplicity, using platforms and a few props, the play probes into the delicate relationship of three singular women: the grandmother, Dorothea, who has sought to assert her independence through strong-willed eccentricity; her brilliant daughter, Artie (Artemis), who has fled the stifling domination of her mother; and Artie's daughter, Echo, a child of exceptional intellect and sensitivity, whom Artie has abandoned to an upbringing by Dorothea. As the play begins, Dorothea has suffered a stroke, and while Echo has reestablished contact with her mother, it is only through extended telephone conversations, during which real issues are skirted and their talk is mostly about the precocious Echo's single-minded domination of a national spelling contest.(Presented through special arrangement with Dramatist's Play service Inc.)
