Looking for lead accompanist/keyboardist for the Mountaineers Players' musicals this spring and summer (Mary Poppins & Shrek). We will hire for each show or one musician for both shows. Past experience playing for musicals is a plus, but not absolutely necessary.  Must be a proficient pianist who works well with others, is flexible and willing to collaborate freely on all aspects of the production process. Experience programming and sequencing a keyboard a plus, but will consider an excellent pianist without those skills. The spring show starts rehearsals in March and the summer show starts rehearsals in June.

Weekly rehearsals and tech week rehearsals are at Seattle Center TPS during the evenings.  Other required rehearsals and all performances will be on weekends at the Kitsap Forest Theater (a rustic outdoor theater) in Bremerton (carpooling available).

We anticipate needing the accompanist for 1 or 2 evenings per week, and for some Saturday and Sundays at the theater in Bremerton. More information about our shows and schedules are on our web site. We are a family-friendly community theater and produce high-quality shows in an outdoor setting. All shows are in the afternoon.

Please contact us for further details, including the pay structure. Contact by phone or email at players at
Thanks so much.

Kitsap Forest Theater
