Mountain Play Association: The Sound of Music
Marin County, CA
On May 4, 1913, about 1,200 hearty souls climbed Mount Tamalpais in Marin County, Calif.—by foot, by burro, and by train—to watch a minimalist production by Mountain Play in a natural amphitheater. Today, the company celebrates its centennial with a full rendition of The Sound of Music on weekends. Craving more history?
