Preparing for a Day on the Mountain

  • What if it rains?
    We check the weather the morning of the performance date. If there is any concern, we monitor it very closely and post a status message on our website home page, facebook and office voicemail by 7:00 am.
    The options are as follows:
    a) Hold everything for an hour to see if the weather will clear or
    b) Cancel the performance
  • What happens if a performance is cancelled?
    There are no refunds given on any ticket purchase. If the show is cancelled due to weather, all tickets for the cancelled performance will be honored at the backup performance or, at company discretion & subject to availability, any remaining show date.  In the event of a rain-out, instructions will be available on this website or by calling (415) 383-1100.
  • When and where do the shuttle busses pick up?
    Detailed information about our shuttle service can be found on our website on the Directions page. The shuttle pick-ups are at the Manzanita Parking Lot and Tamalpais High School in Mill Valley continuously between 10am and 12:45pm on show days.
  • What is the seating like?
    Most seating in this 3,750 stone seat amphitheatre is general admission, meaning that the seats are first-come, first-served. Often, people arrive early for the show and picnic at their seats. Because of our unique venue, and because of the large number of people who attend our performances, we have developed some important guidelines to make the Mountain Play a positive experience for all. Please take a moment to review our policies before you come to the show.
  • Can I save seats?
    The front gate of the theatre opens at 9am. No seats may be saved before that time. When you arrive you may save seats for people in your party who have not yet arrived, but we ask that one person not reserve more than 10 seats. Please be courteous to others by using only one seat space per person. Blankets, beach towels, small signs are excellent ways to save seats. Caution tape is reserved for official uses on the mountain.  DO NOT USE CAUTION TAPE to save your seats.
  • What should and shouldn’t I bring?
    Please visit our What Should I Bring? page for complete information.


As always, you can call our office at (415) 383-1100 with any questions before the day of the show.
