Front cover of the program for the play Rough an' Ready, written and directed by Dan Totheroh. Totheroh was also an accomplished actor, and author of the play Tamalpa, which portrayed the legend of Mt. Tamalpais, and was featured as the Mountain Play six times between 1921 and 1957. Totheroh was at one time a resident of Mill Valley. The 1949 Mountain Play was produced under the auspices of the Marin Centennial Commission and was part of a larger celebration to commemorate the discovery of gold in California in 1849. The Mountain Play Association began its annual production in an outdoor amphitheater on top of Mount Tamalpais, Marin County, in 1913. Shows run for several weekends, beginning each May. Since its start, the plays have gained popularity and now draw large audiences. This program is from a collection of scrapbooks, deposited with the California Room in 1975, by Mountain Play Association Director, Marion Hayes Cain.
