Hike and "The Music Man" at the Mountain Theater!

If you have not purchased your ticket yet, here is a link to DISCOUNTED TICKETS!! Here is a link to 50% off on your ticket:

Let's combine both arts and outdoors with a great rigorous hike up to the Mountain Play on Mt Tam!
Each year the Mountain Theater hosts an outdoor musical production and this year it's The Music Man (you know - 76 trombones!)

There are TWO ways to get up to the amphitheater-
a 6-7 mile hike UP UP UP - about 2.5 hours.
OR there are several spots in Mill Valley where you can take a FREE bus ride up to the theater.

Those who will be hiking will leave downtown Mill Valley at 10:30 am!   Please be sure to get there early so we're not waiting for one or two people....

BUT if you want to take the bus, you can start later (around noon or later - see the website for bus info)

If you have never been to the Mountain Play I encourage you to check out their website to get a feel for the day:

The hikers will leave downtown Mill Valley at 10:30 am -so we can get to the theater and grab a spot in an area where some shade is.
Bring whatever you like to eat and drink (I always bring a bottle of wine) and they do sell an array of food and drink-

It can be very HOT up at the theater so bring a hat, sunscreen, water for the hike (they DO sell water there too)
The amphitheater seats are rock so you may want to bring a small cushion or whatever might make you a bit more comfy.

If you take the bus up, you can bring a cooler and then you can ride down OR you can drop off your cooler on the bus and walk down with the group - many people take the hike back down to Mill Valley.


Use link at top of description -

Tickets are discounted now and are general admission - We will sit in the upper right corner (when looking from the stage) so you can find us if you bus up to the show. Performance starts at 2:00 pm and it's great to get up there early to picnic and meet friends!

These shows are always a blast and whether you want a rigorous hike or a bus ride, we will all have a great time watching The Music Man!
My cell is[masked] - call or txt with questions - I have been to many of these shows so I am happy to answer any questions you have.

NOTE - the meeting location listed here is for the hikers! If you want to park and ride up, check the website to get those locations.

Looking forward to seeing you with your 76 trombones!
