Stage Crafters Community Theatre in Fort Walton Beach will present its 200th production, Something Rotten! the Musical, from November 10-12 and 17-19, 2023.

The musical comedy marks a major milestone for the 51-year-old community theater group. According to the theater’s president Pam Strecker, reaching the 200 show mark reflects the group’s commitment and the community’s support over the decades.

  • “Reaching our 200th show is an incredible accomplishment for Stage Crafters Community Theatre,” said Strecker. “This milestone reflects the enduring commitment of our dedicated volunteers and the unwavering support of our community. Something Rotten! the Musical is a fitting celebration of our journey.”

The production will be staged at the Fort Walton Beach Civic Auditorium under the direction of Craig Ewing and Nancy Kruzek, a longtime member who has been with Stage Crafters since its inception. 

Set in the Renaissance era, the musical humorously follows two brothers seeking to write the world’s first musical.

Ewing expressed enthusiasm about directing the show for the theater’s landmark occasion. Kruzek also commented on the theater’s growth over the years and promised a memorable show.

  • “Stage Crafters has been a second home for so many of us, and it’s heartwarming to see how our theatre family has grown over the years. We’re ready to make this show a memorable one for our community.”

In its 51 seasons, Stage Crafters has offered opportunities for over 12,000 volunteers to gain experience and has reached an audience of more than 350,000. It is the oldest continuously operating all-volunteer, non-profit community theater in Florida.

Something Rotten! will play on Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30PM, with a Sunday matinee at 2PM over the two weekends. Tickets can be purchased through the theater’s website.
