WHAT IS PIED PIPER PLAYERS?

Pied Piper Players is a family theater company dedicated to the promotion of confidence, community and excellence through the performing arts.
We’re about learning new skills, sharing our gifts with others, providing others with production design and building services.

Performance

Over the past 15 years, we have evolved from an organization focused on staging two musical productions annually, to a growing community with a home base and the capacity to offer a variety of theater-based programs year round. Dance, Acting, Tech, School Outreach Education and Enrichment Programs round out our performance-based history. We thank the original PPP Posse whose hard work and vision in 2001 gave us the base we needed to become the award-winning family theater company we are today.

Education

Our home at 1000 S Amphlett Blvd in San Mateo had afforded our community efficiencies that we used to dream of. As we expand our offerings, look for more educational programs, classes, camps and performance opportunities. Acting and Theater Tech classes offer invaluable skills for participants both on and off stage. Jazz, Tap and Ballet classes fill our Dance Studio with music and movement.

Our educational programs include theater classes, Turbo Teen programs, seasonal camps and Summer Theater Conservatory. Come join the fun!

Community Outreach

Outreach programs continue to play a significant role in realizing our company’s mission to enrich our community. Free After-School Drama delivers a unique theater experience directly to local underserved schools. MainStage program Scholarships and the Free Ticket-Gifting and Free Transporation for Local Schools help us share the magic of live theater with our children and their families.

IN OTHER WORDS...

Pied Piper Players is an amazing community of caring, considerate children and adults and place where confidence blooms. My daughter has grown so much, not just as an actor or singer, but as a person. She has made wonderful friendships and has learned so much. It is the one place that she looks forward to going and doesn’t mind missing out on Girl Scouts, Birthday Parties, Slumber Parties, or Play Dates. I once asked her if she minded rehearsing all weekend long and her answer was, “Of course not. I wish I could go more.” Need I say more.

Melissa Gustavson

Incredible emotional growth in kids. Great to have good friends outside of school. Huge self-esteem boost. ‘Happy place’ for my kids, even though putting in a lot of hard work. They enjoyed and benefited from directions (and ‘molding’) from all the artistic staff! Grateful for this wonderful opportunity, relish watching the evolution!

5.15 was our Day of Giving.
You gave generously. Now we give thanks.

Because of your support and participation, we not only met but exceeded our goals by raising an amazing $43,165. With these funds we will continue to delight audiences with our MainStage productions, expand our class offerings, bring more musical theater experiences to underprivileged kids and offer more scholarships so all families can share equally in the joy of PPP. We thank you for stepping up when asked, stretching to give more than you can, and supporting us in everything we do.
