ACCESSIBILITY FOR GUESTS WITH DISABILITIES
The Mountain Play makes every effort to encourage guests needing accessibility assistance to comfortably attend the show.
Interpreting for guests with hearing impairment
Every year we select 3 performances that are sign interpreted for patrons with hearing impairments. Guests can purchase general seating tickets and the day of the performance find your seats in the American Sign Language (ASL) section. CLICK HERE to find that section on our theatre map. You don’t need special reservations.
2019 dates for ASL interpretation are:
JUNE 8, 9, & 16
Platform for Guests in Wheelchairs (Reservations Required)
For guests in a wheelchair, we provide a shaded platform. It can seat up to 8 wheelchairs with 1 companion each for every performance. Due to limited space, platform seating is available only for wheelchair users and one companion. Additional members of the party can find seating nearby.
We also have seating for guests with reduced mobility not in a wheel chair. This seating section is situated directly below the platform, also in the shade. Space is very limited in this row and is only available to those patrons who truly need it.
Reservations are made at the discretion of the staff and on a first come, first served basis. Please make your reservations in advance of the performance day.
Call the office at (415) 383-1100 to make your reservation.
PLATFORM AND LOWER LEVEL TICKET DISCOUNT PRICES: $30.00. Companions of these patrons pay full ticket price.
Special Vehicle Parking for Wheelchair Users (Reservations Required)
Madrone Grove parking is only available to wheelchair users who drive their own specially equipped vehicles and for vans carrying multiple wheelchair patrons. This small lot is located inside the theater and is in close proximity to the wheelchair platform. We only have space for 6 vehicles and is accessible only to patrons who have received a Mountain Play parking permit. Please call to make a reservation early in the season if you need to take advantage of this parking location.
Tamalot – Our Faithful Golf Cart!
Tamalot lives at the front gate between 10:00am and 2:00pm. It shuttles patrons with physical limitations to the head of the short trail that leads to the wheelchair platform or nearby seating. If you are not in a wheelchair, but need some help getting around, this is a great option. You will be taken to the middle of the theatre, making access to seating much easier.
After the performance, Tamalot is available to drive patrons back to the front gate where they are either picked up by their ride or board the bus home. Depending on the number of patrons wanting a ride, there can be a bit of a wait, but people have been extremely happy with Tamalot’s service!
No reservations required. Tamalot is available upon request the day of the performance, with special thanks to the Kaliski family and Harbor Point Tennis Club!
We are very proud of the improvements made over the last few years in logistical handling of these important services.
In November of 1997, the Mountain Play received an award in recognition of its accommodations for patrons with disabilities from the Marin Center for Independent Living. We are very honored and gratified that the community, which we are endeavoring to serve, has told us that we’re doing a good job.
