A treasured family tradition in the greater Seattle arts community since 1923, The Mountaineers Players continues to bring Puget Sound audiences quality outdoor theater under the conifer canopy of its Kitsap Forest Theater every spring and summer. One of the oldest nonprofit theater groups in the country, the Players troupe performs on 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 the "footlights" for the performance stage.
The following article, written by Brad Stracener of The Mountaineers, paints a picture of what draws so many Mountaineers Players to come back year after year to produce plays at the unique Kitsap Forest Theater.
