The Mountaineers Players (Kitsap Forest Theater) are seeking directors for our 2018 Season. We are looking to staff two musical shows: Peter Pan (the Broadway version) in the spring and Tuck Everlasting in the summer.

Show dates, rehearsal schedules, audition information and more information can be found at Please note that weekday rehearsals are at TPS, Seattle Center and weekend rehearsals and performances are at the 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 candidates 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 stating your interest in directing for us, and which show(s) you are interested in directing. We will then schedule interviews in November and will provide applicants with pictures & dimensions of the stage and pertinent show info.  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 Peter Pan and/or Tuck Everlasting.
Please contact Gala Lindvall, producer, to schedule an interview. Call with questions and/or to schedule an interview by phone or by email. 206-542-7815

The Artist's Way Classes in Seattle are Now Open for Registration for Winter Quarter 2018

The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron is an international bestseller on the subject of creativity. Whether you see yourself as an artist or not, this book and class can be an incredibly useful resource to tap into your creative side which can benefit many parts of your lives. The 2 hour a week 12 week long class will take students through the 12 chapters with an emphasis on the accompanying chapter exercises and additional creativity exercises and strategies (i.e. meditation tools). This material can work with anyone, no matter how dormant or energized their creative life may be.

Julia Cameron uses three basic tools for students to enhance their lives and their creativity: morning pages (writing 3 pages longhand of stream of consciousness writing), artist's dates (solo fun dates with yourself) and completing creativity exercises at the back of each chapter. Students report that as a result of going through our Artist's Way class they more fully and genuinely know themselves, they discover or re-discover their gifts and talents and have more fun and joy in their lives.

To quote Julia, "In order to retrieve your creativity, you need to find it." The basic tools and the additional creativity exercises that we incorporate into the 12 week course can help you do just that. No prerequisites required for this class.  Maximum 11 students per class.

For testimonials from past students:

"Do this class! Enjoyable, thought provoking, Fun, ability to take risks, self-introspective opportunity. Yes, DO it!" Winter 2017 Artist's Way Student

"I was hoping to learn how to keep myself focusing on my own creativity and not short-change myself. The class was vastly helpful in that. The class was very useful to me as an artist and as a person. Kate is an amazing teacher." - Cora A., Spring 2017 Artist's Way Student

Instructor: Kate Gavigan is passionate about The Artist's Way having seen the positive changes in her students' lives and having personally experienced the benefits of the materials. Kate worked in social services as a trainer for over 10 years when she found herself drawn to the material in The Artist's Way, which helped her uncover a passion for theatre and the arts. She credits her mid-life career change (now working at her dream jobs as an Artist's Way Instructor and Speaker, a Creativity Coach, a Home Organizer and pursuing her interest in Acting) to having gone through The Artist's Way.

INTRO TO SUZUKI with Michael Place
November 18 & 19 // 2:00PM - 5:00PM
Full Rate: $150 // Discount Rate: $105
The training methodology of acclaimed Japanese Theatre director Tadashi Suzuki, Suzuki Method re-prioritizes the core as the center of the actor's instrument in totality. Thought a series of sustained and dynamic disciplines, this practice invites the actor to explore their most efficient, powerful, quick, resilient and coordinated selves while expanding their imaginations and harnessing a palpable sense of readiness, all with the aim of deepening live performance. Suzuki Method seeks to aid the actor in communicating intention with the entire instrument, allowing for a receptive and dynamic presence on stage.
SLOW TEMPO with Michael Place
December 2 & 3 // 2:00PM - 5:00PM
Full Rate $150 // Discount Rate $105
Shogo Ohta, Japanese director, playwright and master teacher, spent over twenty years exploring gesture and the actor’s movement in three-dimensional, modern, urban space. His training and performance aesthetic evolved into an acute, nearly microscopic look at the human condition, expressed entirely in slow tempo and in silence. His practice challenges the actor to explore each moment without adornment, while increasing stamina, strength, concentration, breath control, focus, honesty and clarity. This work distills the present moment inviting the magnitude of our most essential selves.
with Christine Marie Brown
December 3 & 10 // 10:00AM - 2:00PM
Full Rate: $200 // Discounted Rate: $140
Auditioning is the skill that actors use most often in their career. Do you feel apathetic, hopeless or out of control when you audition? Do feel mystified about how best to prepare? We will breakdown each part of an actual audition - from prep to exiting the room-and we will unpack what's working and tackle what's not. Come prepared with a modern monologue to work on- memorized and ready to use for an audition- not something you memorized the night before. This workshop is for those professional actors who may feel stuck for some reason and are hungry to take their audition skills to the next level. I LOVE this topic and have been wrestling and enjoying this part of my career for more than 2 decades. Come and get in the sandbox with me-- and we will make discoveries that will move your work forward.
Prerequisites: BA, BFA or MFA in Drama/Acting, Completed Audition course at Freehold and/or 3 or more professional theatre credits.
December 9 & 10 // (Times vary)
Full Rate: $200 // Discount Rate: $140
