Peninsula Backstage


There’s no shortage of live theatre on the San Francisco Peninsula. Plays, musicals, and opera. Modern and classical. Professional and amateur. Peninsula Backstage brings in the people behind upcoming shows to talk about them. Tune in and find out what’s going on in our world of theatre.

Our Current Episode

On April 8th, we shot an episode featuring Palo Alto Players‘ upcoming production of Monty Python’s Spamalot, which is running at the Lucie Stern Theater in Palo Alto from April 28th through May 14th. Peninsula Backstage host Nina G. Perry interviewed the director and two of the actors. Plus, the actors performed a song from the show with accompaniment from the music director.

David Simon directed the episode, and we couldn’t have done it without the talents of crew members Fred Bockmann, Stan Ng, Erik Lind, Alan Zoraster, Lessa Bouchard, Kevin Burnett, Cathy Keys, and Andrew Chen.
