See the Broadway classic rock musical, "Grease," on the side of Mount Tam overlooking all of the Bay Area.
The Mountain Play Association presents their annual musical in the natural outdoor Sidney B. Cushing Memorial amphitheatre on top of Mt. Tamalpais. Located at approximately 1900 feet elevation, the theatre looks out over the San Francisco Bay Area and holds approximately 3750 patrons. With serpentine rock seating built by the California Conservation Corporation in 1936-38, the theatre is now part of Mt. Tamalpais State Park. Mountain Play owes their existence to a fortuitous outing on the wild slopes of Mt. Tam in 1912, when three gentleman hikers, stopped to admire the view. The beauty of the spot and natural amphitheatre formed by the hillside, provided the material for inspiration, and on May 4, 1913, the first Mountain Play was performed in front of 1,200 enthusiastic hikers.
Parking is limited so check Mountain Play's website for a list of all your options and help plan for your visit: www.mountainplay.org.
