A scene from the 1972 production of Dan Totheroh's Rough an' Ready. Though this play had been performed a number of times before, 1972 marked the first time the play was presented as a musical. It was directed by Dan Caldwell and featured music and lyrics by John Balmer. 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 image is from a collection of scrapbooks, deposited with the California Room in 1975, by Mountain Play Association Director, Marion Hayes Cain.
