Runs Jun 10 - Jun 26, 2022
Orsino loves Olivia (who won’t give him the time of day). Olivia loves Viola (whom she thinks is a boy). Viola loves Orsino (who doesn’t know she’s a girl). Malvolio loves being in love; and Sir Andrew, Toby Belch, and Maria love life to its fullest. It’s all rollicking confusion, but these hilarious characters do, at last, find love where they least expect it. Palo Alto Players is thrilled to welcome back our friends from the Gunn community to present one of Shakespeare’s most loved comedies!

It is NOT our birthday, so of course it's time to celebrate the only way that's appropriate.. with a very merry unbirthday party! For some forgotten reason, foul forces prevented us from throwing a true celebration of our 90th birthday last year... so we're going to celebrate it this spring! Our deviously delightful friend the Mad Hatter cordially invites you to join him for a spot of afternoon tea. Dress to impress in your own Wonderland-inspired attire and enjoy delightfully whimsical conversations with members of the PAP family and your fellow fans, eat off the wall foods and drinks, and enjoy entertainment that will tickle you with delight.
