We are a not-for-profit organization, dedicated to promoting the arts in Kitsap County.
WWCA is located at 521 Bay Street, Port Orchard, WA 98366, directly on the waterfront. Our building is adjacent to the marina, across the street from Dick Vlist Motors.
The theater building has only 6-7 spaces in the front. To ensure easy access for patrons with mobility concerns, please use other parking if you are physically able. There is plenty of street parking available near the theater. You may also use the perimeter parking spaces in the boat launch parking lot. Do not park in the pull-through spaces reserved for boat trailers.
In February 2002, Western Washington Center for the Arts, formerly First Onstage Productions, began renovation of our current home, a 1918-historic building on the Port Orchard waterfront, creating a 74 seat venue for live theater. Our mission is to present, preserve and promote the arts, especially the theater arts.
WWCA is governed by a volunteer board of directors, elected from the community by members of WWCA. Membership in WWCA is gained by purchase of a season subscription or becoming a volunteer and paying a $10 membership fee. Ask us about becoming a member of WWCA or about becoming a member of the board of directors. WWCA is totally dependent on volunteers and always interested in “spreading the wealth” achieved through volunteering your time and your talents.
Our Artistic Director is Rebecca Ewen. Our current board of directors are Kyle Boynton, Abigail Dickson, Gary Fetterplace, Cindy Fitch, Carol Fogel, Steve Havert, Edd Jentzsch, Erik Lawrence, Angela McDermott, Chris Townsend, Scott Usher and Crystal Lee Yingling
