Not wishing to overload CreativeWork in the subtypes department, but ‘Play’
does seem to be an obvious missing candidate.

I don’t really think the ’Stage’ qualification is necessary. Most of the
properties you reference would be inherited from CreativeWork.  The
exceptions being some of the more specific contributors such as
StageDesigner and WadrobeKeeper.   These could be handled as per some of
the roles in the movie industry are - using the Role
<http://schema.org/Role> construct.

You could then connect the individual performances to the Play using
TheaterEvent if appropriate using the workPerformed property.

Most if not all of those things would be CreativeWorks or subtypes thereof,
in their own right and could be considered ‘isPartOf’ of the play.
