Student-led Shakespeare company debuts in Palo Alto

'Hamlet' will be local teen theater group's first production

Pale Fire Theater, a student-led Shakespearean theater company based in Palo Alto, is presenting its first production, "Hamlet," Aug. 9, 16 and 17 at 7 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church Palo Alto, 1140 Cowper St.

"We founded Pale Fire Theater to create a student-led space for Palo Alto thespians to engage with Shakespeare. Above all, we seek to promote community, initiative and an appreciation of the dramatic arts in the South Bay," Head of Marketing and Publicity Deniz Eryilmaz told the Weekly.

The company was founded by recent Gunn graduate Henry Alper, who is also directing and playing the title role of "Hamlet."

"He assembled a design and production team and after a successful gofundme campaign we are now approaching our first production. We are hoping to be able to produce enough revenue to cover the costs of producing the show," Eryilmaz said.

Tickets are $5 and are available at Eventbrite.
