The Players has a long tradition of community involvement and distinguishes itself from other theatres in the Bay Area through its commitment to making theatre accessible to all those local artists and audiences interested in making theatre a part of their lives.  True to its mission, Palo Alto Players casts local actors in all five main-stage productions, highlights the work of local directors and designers, and fills its orchestra pit with local musicians.


But we can only do all this with your support!


Over the last 80+ years, Palo Alto Players has delighted audiences with challenging, engaging, and entertaining performances – all the while, continuing to reflect its time and community. With the support of your donations today, Palo Alto Players will continue to soar as the leading voice for local art and artists on the Peninsula.
