The Merc Playhouse in Twisp recently introduced Ki Gottberg, a theater professor at Seattle University, as its new artistic director. Gottberg, also a longtime playwright, actor and director, begins her three-year contract Sept. 1 and will succeed Julie Wenzel, who served as director for four years.

As the artistic director, Gottberg is charged with planning the season of the playhouse and selecting plays that best fit the actors, directors and community. She also plans to continue teaching theater three days a week at Seattle University.
