Comments

Lee Stetson's career includes founding and managing the Hawaii Performing Arts Company, being the artistic manager of both the Hawaii Theatre Festival and the Antique Theatre Festival of Idaho, and freelance directing throughout the Northwest and in Los Angeles. Stetson has a master's degree in American Studies and a certificate in arts administration from Harvard University. As an actor he has performed more than 50 major roles from Shakespeare to Simon, and his television credits include a dozen episodes of Hawaii Five-0. His many original dramatic productions include four one-person shows based on the life of John Muir, and two other productions where President Theodore Roosevelt joins Muir, all of which have been presented in Yosemite National Park since 1983 to hundreds of thousands of visitors. The Muir shows also have toured throughout the country to universities, parks, museums and wilderness and environmental organizations, and throughout Scotland, Canada and Japan as well. In 2009, Stetson was featured as a Muir scholar and the voice of Muir in Ken Burn's PBS series The National Parks, America's Best Idea.
