Into the Woods

This is a special opportunity to see Into the Woods — in the woods! This musical brings all your favorite fairy tale characters together to explore what they’re all searching for. Mountain Play productions take place on the top of Mount Tam. With limited parking next to the theater, guests can reserve a spot ($40) in advance, or park in Mill Valley and take a shuttle up to the outdoor amphitheater. Little ones can climb around on the rocks and have room to wiggle. The plot lends itself to leaving after the first act if that’s what feels right to your family.
