Hear ye, hear ye! The venerable institutions 510Families, East Bay Express, and now Theatre Bay Area have all recommended Shakespeare or Space Wars!
And we’ve got some fun pictures to show you!
Romeo & Juliet… in space!

It always feels like coming home when the Peripatetic Players get together — albeit a wacky, loud, hilarious home.
Last evening we gathered to plan our 2017 Obstacle-A-Thon, our annual fundraiser for our summer tour. This year’s Obstacle-A-Thon will be held on Sunday, April 23rd at 3:00pm at Mosswood Park in Oakland. Please stop on by to witness our silliness and help us raise money for our tour!
Some of this years obstacles will include:
- Something with Meekins?
- Finding Your Way To Mantua
- Skarkline (a 2016 favorite)
- Shakespearean Soliloquies and Sonnets with Samuel Peaches!
- Want a teaser? Here you go:PROMPT: Perform as the clueless Friar from Romeo and Juliet, apologizing to the emotional Lady Capulet about Juliet’s suicide.
And many, many more that I cannot reveal to you!
So join us! Don your most eccentric costumes (or borrow one of ours), pull out all the stops, face your least-known fears and join us for the Thon to out-thon all Thons! THIS Thon is (kinda like last year’s Thon but still really like) no Thon you’ve ever Thonned before.
