    About Us

    The Peninsula?s first theatre company, Palo Alto Players has been continuously producing quality live theatre in Palo Alto since 1931. Based at the Lucie Stern Theater, built for Palo Alto Players in 1933, this non-profit theatre company produces a season of comedies, dramas, classics and musicals from September to June. Audiences and participants come from all over the Bay Area to be a part of Palo Alto Players' productions.

    Theatre productions such as ours are the result of hundreds of hours of volunteer effort. There are many areas available to participants of all age levels. Volunteers are involved in constructing, painting and decorating sets, constructing costumes and props, running the show as stage crew and performing for the audience as actors. Patrons are assisted by volunteers working in marketing, the box office and ushering for each performance. There is no part of a Palo Alto Players production untouched by valued, irreplaceable volunteers.

    Palo Alto Players' Mission Statement
    Palo Alto Players is committed to providing a meaningful theatre experience for both audience and production participants. Intrinsic in this is the belief that theatre benefits the community-at-large and enhances the quality of life of those who are touched by it through education, enlightenment and enrichment.

    In support of this mission, we are committed to:
    1) Diversity in programming;
    2) Accessibility to all those interested; and
    3) Support of theatrical training and career development.
