The Mountain Play – A Great Outdoor Adventure and the San Francisco Bay Area’s most glorious outdoor theater experience, is proud to present their annual fall fundraising gala, Can’t Stop the Beat: A Musical Benefit for the Mountain Play. A cabaret show featuring some of the Mountain Play’s favorite performers singing hits from Broadway will be the centerpiece of this musical evening, held on November 6, 2010. Join us for a champagne toast, cocktail reception, gourmet supper buffet, silent and live auctions and followed by a fabulous show and dancing to the music of the 60s. This hugely popular event sells out.
The annual fall benefit kicks off the production season, helping raise much-needed funds to begin work on Hairspray. The Hoytt Theater at Osher Marin JCC in San Rafael will be rockin’ and all your favorite local restaurants will be there offering gourmet tapas-style cuisine paired with local wines.
