"Beauty and the Beast" at the Kitsap Forest Theater (8 dates)

Escape to the Kitsap Forest Theater – Join us for a grand adventure! Stroll down the forested trail to The Mountaineers unique and breathtaking theater and create a treasured family tradition. We are located 15 minutes from the Bremerton Ferry dock – all ages will delight in this fun Northwest experience. Come early and picnic under the firs before the show.

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 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 the “footlights” for the performance stage.

Trail to the theater opens at 1:00 pm. Come early for the best choice of seats and to picnic on the property. Hike the "Big Tree" trail before or after the show to see the second largest Douglas Fir on the Kitsap peninsula. Kids will enjoy climbing on our "Tree House Play Structure" near Kitsap Cabin.

Tickets available online and at The Mountaineers. See "more information" for our website and details.

Step into the enchanted world of Broadway’s modern classic, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, at the most magical of places – the Kitsap Forest Theater. This classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. 

Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, this version includes all of the wonderful songs written by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice and book by Linda Woolverton. The original Broadway production ran for over 13 years and was nominated for 9 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

Beauty and the Beast was last performed at KFT in 2008 and we are thrilled to bring this beloved show back to our theater. This “tale as old as time” is perfect for the entire family and we invite you to “Be Our Guest” for this heartwarming tale of true love and transformation, filled with unforgettable songs and thrilling pageantry.
