R. Ed Davis – (Founder, Executive/Artistic Director) Ed’s dream and vision started Starlight Mountain Theatre, and he continues to oversee its operation on a daily basis. He is responsible for show selection, auditions, casting and directing every show, and is the loving father-figure of our theatre. Without Ed, there would be no Starlight!
Jan Cooksey Davis – (Co-Founder, Artistic Director, Choreographer, Playwright) Jan is responsible for creating the musical tone for each show, and choreographing the dance numbers to go with them. She also writes new shows for Starlight, and lends a hand with directing shows along-side husband, Ed.
Ed Sr. and Thelma Davis – (Co-Founders, Producers) Summer season 2009 brought changes to the Starlight Family as Ed Sr. or Grandpa, as he was lovingly known, passed away. He touched many lives during the first ten seasons of Starlight and he will be greatly missed by all. His spirit is still with us and we know he is watching over us. Although “retired”, you’re still sure to see Grandma, as she is lovingly known, helping around the theatre and costume shop and encouraging a new crew of young actors to reach their full potential. Retirement means more time for Thelma to travel and visit family members, especially all those dozens of grandchildren, and great-grandchildren that she loves to spend time with!
Angie Anderson - (House/Comapny/Box Office Manager) Angie started out as Starlight's biggest fan, so we put her to work. She has spent many summer and winter seasons as house/company manager for SMT. Look for her in the audience front and center every night! Special thanks to my SMT family and all who bring magic to theatre!
