Meet Our People

Our theatre thrives because of the passion and heart of our volunteer leaders.

David Chancellor | President

An active member of Stage Crafters for over 20 years, I am truly honored to serve as our President for our 52nd year. I have starred in more than 20 shows, and love working backstage almost as much! I am grateful to Stage Crafters for bringing an amazing group of people into my life, many of whom have become my dearest friends. And I have a passion for sharing the magic of theatre and the joy of collaborating to bring people together. I look forward to making even more friends this year, and I would love to encourage everyone reading this to reach out and join our incredible community!

"I am grateful to Stage Crafters for bringing an amazing group of people into my life, many of whom have become my dearest friends."

Mark Murphy | Vice President

Mark was a Theatre major in college and didn’t perform for 19 years before he joined us in 2004. He has served on the executive board for 6 years and has also performed in over 25 shows.

"I love Stage Crafters because the volunteers have full time jobs/lives and still dedicate hundreds of hours to each production because they love theatre."

Chuck Harrison
Chuck Harrison | Secretary

Chuck has been with Stage Crafters on and off stage for 3 years. Chuck retired from the Air Force in 2021 and works at Keller Williams Emerald Coast. His passion is musicals but has come to enjoy the technical side of theater.

"Stage Crafters is a powerful organization for promoting the arts in our community and I am grateful to be involved."

Darsi Ewing | Treasurer

Darsi has been ‘with’ StageCrafters for over 25 years, on the board for 6 years, with the current run of 4 years. She can be found supporting behind the scenes, working the front of house, and has had the titles of Producer and Treasurer.

"I love that Stage Crafters opens it’s heart to everyone who comes thru the doors … of the Rehearsal Hall and the Auditorium."

Craig Ewing | Business Manager

Craig “retired” in 2022 from a 35-year career with the USAF as a senior research scientist and now works for a defense contractor in weapons simulation.  He has been with us since 1987 and our business manager for more than 25 years.

"It's so great to have Stage Crafters as an outlet for the creative/artistic side of a weapons engineer."
