Welcome to Grab Bag Theater! We are a student-run theater company that provides youth with opportunities to perform, the skills and support to produce shows independently, and an active theater network across the Peninsula.
Founded in 2011, GBT now produces many events a year, including open-mic nights, full-scale musicals, and arts festivals. Participants in these events come from more than a dozen different schools around the Peninsula.
We are hosting a Holiday Open Mic on Friday, December 12 from 7-10 pm at the First Congregational Church of Palo Alto (1985 Louis Rd). The festivities will include holiday carol sing-a-longs, a potluck of treats, and songs, monologues, or anything else from everyone who wants to perform. Contributions to our potluck will be much appreciated! Since this is a special open mic, we are encouraging holiday costumes (like tacky holiday sweaters). If you plan on performing, all you need to do is sign up when you get there. There will be a microphone, piano, guitar, and lyrics to popular holiday songs provided!
Our fall play, "Nothing is the End of the World (except for the end of the world)" just ended on November 15! Thanks to all who came to see it; your support is invaluable to our community and we hope you enjoyed the show. Please see our show page for the cast list, crew, production team, promotional video, and pictures from the show!
