In order to offer the Mountain Play experience to all possible audience, we have developed a number of special programs and services for patrons with special needs, including the “Day on the Mountain” Outreach Program.
For years, the Mountain Play has carefully maintained ticket prices below the level of similar professional Bay Area performances. However, those ticket prices remain out of reach for many families. To provide access to the Mountain Play experience for those children and families, we established a special “Day on the Mountain” Outreach Program in 1993.
This opportunity represents a new adventure for most participants, an introduction to both live theatrical performance and to the natural environment of the mountain. In addition to free tickets to the performance, the Mountain Play provides bus transportation from the participants' local area, picnic lunches, and Mountain Play t-shirts. We also provide an extended education program that includes a guided hike on the mountain before the performance.
This year, the Mountain Play will provide a “Day on the Mountain” Outreach Program for children and families in conjunction with the following agencies:
