The Mountaineers Players are seeking directors for our 2019 Season at the Kitsap Forest Theater. We are looking to staff two musical shows: Newsies in the spring and Mamma Mia! in the summer.

Show dates and tentative rehearsal schedules can be found on our web site ( Weeknight rehearsals are in Seattle at TPS, Seattle Center, and weekend rehearsals and performances are at our outdoor theater.

Our outdoor theater is located in the midst of the 460-acre Rhododendron Preserve near Bremerton.  Giant fir trees surround terraced seating – carved from the side of a natural amphitheater – while verdant ferns serve as “footlights” for the performance stage.  Special challenges for this outdoor theater include minimalistic set design that allows the natural beauty of the forest to shine, including the dirt floor surface, daylight performances with no additional lighting, and seamless scene transitions without the use of curtains. The ideal candidate will embrace the outdoor experience, and will be comfortable working with all ages of actors and all different levels of experience, be skilled at time management and using all company members’ time wisely, and be able to work collaboratively with the production team.
Interested candidates should send a resume and cover letter to auditions at stating your interest in directing for us, and which show(s) you are interested in directing. We will then schedule interviews.  During the interview process, the director candidate should be prepared to present his/her vision of the show(s), particularly how he/she would utilize the outdoor space in telling the story of Newsies and/or Mamma Mia!

We encourage you to attend our current show, Tuck Everlasting, weekends at 2:00 pm at the Kitsap Forest Theater through August 19th. It is a great example of a show perfectly fit to our theater.

Please contact Gala Lindvall, producer, with any questions or for more information.
