Your tax-deductible gift to Palo Alto Players will help:


  • SUPPORT local actors, designers, and directors. We're proud to provide stipends to all of our local artists!


  • PRODUCE diverse programming that reflects our community. You make it possible for us to secure the most compelling show titles that entertain us, challenge us, and help us to experience the world in unexpected ways.


  • PROVIDE affordable access to the arts. Did you know that without your help ticket prices would cost twice as much as they do now? Keeping ticket prices low creates more opportunities to engage our schools and community partners.


  • ENSURE the arts thrive in our community. Created by the community, for the community over 85 years ago, we continue to inspire over 13,000 audience members and engage over 250 local artists each year. And with your help, we know we can reach more.
