We greatly appreciate the support of
The San Mateo County Arts Commission.

The purpose of the San Mateo Arts Commission is very much in line with the core values of Pied Piper Players. They support arts events, programs, outreach, engagement or services that create social vitality in neighborhoods, K-12 schools and with underserved constituencies. They provide funds to assist arts organizations in building a strong presence in the community, growing audiences and expanding services and programs to the community and to children in grades K-12 and to educate and expose county residents to a wide range of artistic and cultural expression.

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.

Theater Performance

Over the past 19 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. Voice, Acting, Dance, School Theater Education and Enrichment Programs round out our performance-based history.

Heartfelt thanks goes to the original PPP Posse whose hard work and vision in 2001 gave us the base needed to become the award-winning family theater company PPP is today.

Theater Arts Education

PPP’s HQ at 1000 S Amphlett Blvd in San Mateo is home to Acting, Voice, Dance, and Tech Classes, Workshops, and Camps for participants interested in learning on stage and back stage skills. Our Dance Studio is often lit up with music and movement. PPP’s Theater Arts Education programs include Theater Arts Classes,  Teen Programs, Theater Camps and Summer Theater Conservatory.

School Theater Programs. We work in partnership with local schools, providing drama classes and theater productions.

Giving Back

Giving back to our community continues to play a significant role in realizing our company’s mission. Free After-School Drama delivers a unique theater experience directly to local underserved schools. MainStage 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.


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!

Thanks to your support and participation, PPP 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 the performing arts.
