Bainbridge Performing Arts has announced the appointment of Josh Anderson — previously a music director, performer and director of education at BPA — to the new position of resident musical director for the 2014 / 2015 season.

In this new capacity, Anderson will collaborate with mainstage directors Tim Davidson, Ken Michels and Joanna Hardie to fashion the fantastic work that BPA audiences have come to expect.

Additionally, he will take the helm in February when he directs “Side by Side by Sondheim.”

Dominique Cantwell, BPA’s executive director, said that BPA is thrilled at the new arrangement.

“Josh is such a wonderfully skilled musician and we’re proud to feature him in this new role at BPA,” she said. “Audiences and performers are in for a real treat.”

Anderson said he is thrilled with this new, expanded role at BPA.

A tireless advocate for musical theater, Anderson has been involved in countless productions in various capacities and he is wildly enthusiastic about the ability of musical theater to both draw a community together and entertain an audience.
