The Palo Alto Players have a tradition of giving back to the community by partnering with a local nonprofit that is chosen by the cast and whose cause aligns with particular themes in each show. CASA has been chosen as the Players’ non-profit partner for Stephen Sondheim’s musical, Into the Woods, which runs through May 8 at the Lucie Stern Theater in Palo Alto. During each production, an actor will introduce audiences to CASA and ask for cash contributions which will be collected in donation boxes in the lobby. We will have brochures on display so no CASA representation is required. However, if we happen to have staff or volunteers in the audience, the Players welcome us to hover by the display table to answer questions. It’s a great opportunity for us to both fundraise and possibly even recruit new volunteers! If you are available to informally represent CASA (no public speaking required) contact Mary@casaofsanmateo.org.
Due to mature themes, the show might not be appropriate for your CASA child, but you can take advantage of some wonderful local theater. Save $10 off regular price tickets by using promo code “CASA.” Order online www.paplayers.org.
