The Mountaineers Players is one of the oldest "community" theater groups under its original charter in the United States. What began as skits and mock sword fights has grown into two annual productions that take place in the Kitsap Forest Theater. Since our first rehearsed production, Robin of Sherwood, in 1923, the Players have presented a show every spring coinciding with our blooming wild rhododendrons. This tradition has been unbroken except during 1943-1946 when World War II interrupted the productions. Read about our history here.
The Players started producing an annual summer play in 2007 to allow more people to enjoy this beautiful venue. The summer is a delightful time to bring the whole family to enjoy a "day away" in the forest. The Players also have produced several fall plays since 1990.
Hundreds of people from actors and the production staff (director, music director, choreographer, accompanist, costumer, set designer, sound designer, stage manager, etc.) to ticket sellers, ushers and parkers, etc. band together to make each production a memorable one. Please consider joining us on either side of the ferns, either as an actor in one of our plays, or in one of the many support positions vital to the success of our endeavors.
