The Palo Alto High School Theater’s production, “A Server of Two Masters,” will open on Nov. 6.

The play is a modern spin of an 18th century comedy that follows the misadventures of a servant trying to simultaneously serve two separate masters without exposing himself. 

“It’s a modern take on an old classic called ‘A Servant of Two Masters,’” senior  actor Will Kast said. “It’s a little bit of a pun, bringing it into the modern times of the tech world.”

According to Kast, Paly’s production will be just as lighthearted.  

“It’s going to be 90 minutes, which is the shortest show we’ve done in a long time,” Kast said. “There will be lots of physical humor, farce — great for all audiences. [It] should be a lot of fun.”

In November, “A Server of Two Masters” will be performed five times. Tickets will cost $5 each and can be purchased on the theater website, at the auditor’s office, or at the door.
