About this project

"MOUNTAIN PLAY - The Movie," is a documentary film project about THE MOUNTAIN PLAY.

THE MOUNTAIN PLAY is a San Francisco Bay Area theatrical tradition, originating in 1913. It is performed each year on Mount Tamalpais in Marin County, CA, in a natural amphitheater upgraded with locally quarried stone seating and other improvements. Recent shows have included "Annie," "Oklahoma," and "The Wizard of Oz." This year's show will be "The Music Man."

To learn more about THE MOUNTAIN PLAY itself, follow this link to their web site:  http://www.mountainplay.org/

For the last 30 years, THE MOUNTAIN PLAY has been directed by James Dunn, who is also the founder and head of the Drama Department at the College of Marin. Mr. Dunn is an icon of Northern California theater. This will be his final year as director of THE MOUNTAIN PLAY - thus the urgency of this timely film project. We have Mr. Dunn's permission and support for this documentary film production.

The film will document this year's MOUNTAIN PLAY production of "The Music Man." We will film the stage production, work behind the scenes and in the orchestra "pit," rehearsals, set construction, cast party, and interviews with actors, stage hands, director, stage manager and other principals. But there is more:

Since this will be the final year of James Dunn's direction, we will also overview his career - with THE MOUNTAIN PLAY, the College of Marin, and his mentoring of local talent success stories.

The producer/director of the movie, Laurel Fontana, has worked in the crew of THE MOUNTAIN PLAY in six of the last ten years' productions. She is uniquely suited, positioned and qualified to make this movie, and has the permission and support of Mr. Dunn and THE MOUNTAIN PLAY staff, as well as the College of Marin, to make this important documentary movie.

This promises to be a highly-successful project about an important theatrical tradition in Northern California.
