This week, we head to Palo Alto, California, to check out the Gunn High School Theatre Department! Read up on the program and watch below for a promo video of 'You Can't Take It With You' performed during the 2011 season.

Under the leadership of James Shelby (director/teacher) and Kristen Lo (technical theatre director / teacher), the Gunn theatre program includes:

Gunn students stage three major productions, Fall, Spring and One Acts each year, and occasional staged readings.

Stage auditions and tech/ crew roles are open to all Gunn students. Subscribe to our "Cast" and / or "Crew" announcements list to receive up to date information on the latest opportunities regarding shows.
