Peter Pan Comes to Mount Tam

The Mountain Play Features Peter Pan

The Bay Area's best outdoor venue is gearing up for one of Broadway's musicals! For a few weeks this summer, the Mountain Play will feature the classic Peter Pan at the outdoor Cushing Memorial Amphitheatre on Mount Tam—above the clouds of San Francisco Bay. Every Sunday from May 24 through June 21, Peter Pan will be flying high indeed! You can pack your own picnic or purchase food and wine on-site, then take a seat to watch the play. Or, for a truly magical experience, go for the Dining in the Woods option. Before the play begins, you'll be treated to a gourmet food and wine experience set in a private grove of beautiful madrones. A multi-course gourmet lunch will be served to you, paired with fine wines. Then when the show starts you'll be seated in a reserved, shaded spot at the outdoor amphitheater. Sit back and enjoy the show … and the high mountain scenery: it's Peter Panoramic!

PETER PANTASTIC: Book your Patron's Circle ("Dining in the Woods") reserved seats before they sell out. These seats are sold by phone only: (415) 383-1100. Your day will include a gourmet lunch paired with fine wines and the best—shaded—seats in the house.

There is also a hiking trail that leads to the amphitheater. Hike up with lunch and seats waiting, then hike down after Peter Pan.
