Kris Murphy
Kris MurphyDallas
Kris Murphy became involved with North Texas Performing Arts in 2013 after seeing her child literally grow an inch taller when she took the stage for the first time — she knew she had discovered something pretty magical. Since then, her daughter has continued to grow in her confidence, abilities and love for musical theatre through her involvement with NTPA, and Kris has become more and more involved as a parent volunteer. In an effort to help bring the same incredible performing arts opportunities to Dallas youth, she worked with the team that initiated NTPA – Dallas in 2016 and joined the board in 2017. When she is not volunteering or helping her daughter prepare for a show, Kris works as a copywriter and graphic designer, is the mom of two amazing kids and co-manages her household with her equally amazing husband, Brandon. She graduated with a BFA from the communication design program at the University of North Texas.
