She is also a founding and board member of The Musical Theatre Guild (MTG) which performs concert staged readings of seldom done gems of the musical theater at Glendale's historic Alex Theatre, and a founding member of CCAP - Classic & Contemporary American Plays (began by Bonnie Franklin) bringing theater into the lives of children of diverse backgrounds.  

She is married to Jim Keller who she met when he was the theater manager and she was performing at the Mayfair Music Hall in Santa Monica.  They share their life with numerous kitties who have adopted them, and the dearest shelter rescue, Dylann. Though she continues her acting career, together Marsha and Jim have carried on a family business begun by her parents in 1949 - Kramers Pipe & Tobacco Shop in Beverly Hills.
