The Mountain Play began as a unique annual rite of spring in 1913, by gathering people together on Mount Tamalpais to share the magic of live theatre and the glorious environment. Storytelling, whether an ancient Greek play or a brand new Broadway musical smash, is the foundation of the Mountain Play – our bedrock. Bringing musical theatre to brand new heights, the Mountain Play is an all-day outdoor experience that is unlike any other theatre.


Rooted in more than a century of theatrical tradition, Mountain Play Association provides enriching live musical theatre that stimulates creativity, engages and unites our community, and fosters a lifelong enjoyment of the arts. Our signature outdoor production nurtures respect for the unique natural beauty of Mount Tamalpais and its historic Cushing Amphitheatre.

The Mountain Play Association is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
EIN 94-6092215


For generations to come, the Mountain Play will draw together Bay Area families and friends of all ages to share in the universal tradition of storytelling through musical theatre.
