Palo Alto

Theater Rental


Palo Alto Unified School District facilities are sometimes available for use by the community. Activities should adhere to the interests of the district and should not interfere with educational programs. First priority is always given to the education of students.

Theatre Facilities is a part of the Maintenance, Operations, and Transportation division of Palo Alto Unified School District. Our staff members have years of experience in entertainment technology and theatre operation. We are committed to maintaining and improving our fantastic facilities, and supporting the events that make use of them.

The Theatre Facilities department manages the Haymarket Theater at Palo Alto High School (Paly), Palo Alto High School Performing Arts Center (PAC), and Spangenberg Theater at Gunn High School. The Haymarket Theater and Spangenberg Theater are available for public rental. The theaters are suitable for music, dance, drama, film, speaking presentations, and more.
