|Palo Alto Players is the oldest theater group on the Peninsula. This month of July marks the Players' 75th anniversary. It's amazing that anything has survived three quarters of a century in the bustling Bay Area — especially an organization that has weathered both the Great Depression and the current recession.
In between, there were other obstacles, such as losing cast and crew members to wartime drafts and government funding to Prop. 13. And sweeping the occasional anchovy off the stage.
The theater group, though, keeps putting on well-regarded shows, staging comedies, dramas and musicals in a blend of classic and current.
