NOTE: Due to breakthrough COVID cases in the company, the Palo Alto Players have canceled the remaining in-person performances of ALLEGIANCE. The on-demand streaming has been extended and is available for viewing from May 5 through May 22.
The Palo Alto Players are thrilled to be presenting this powerful musical, under the direction of Vinh G. Nguyen, with choreography by Nicole Tung, music direction by Benjamin Belew, and a stellar cast of 20 Bay Area actors.
Inspired by the true childhood experience of TV/film actor and social media icon George Takei (Mr. Sulu on Star Trek), ALLEGIANCE tells the story of the Kimura family, whose lives are upended when they are forced to leave their Salinas, California home following the events at Pearl Harbor, and join 120,000 other Japanese-Americans in internment camps dotted around America. Sam Kimura seeks to prove his patriotism by fighting for his country in the war, but sister Kei fiercely protests the government’s treatment of her people. An uplifting testament to the power of the human spirit, ALLEGIANCE follows the Kimuras as they fight between duty and defiance, custom and change, family bonds and forbidden loves.
