Palo Alto Players returns to in-person theater for the first time since being shuttered in March 2020 with an outdoor staged production of “Tea for Three: Lady Bird, Pat & Betty,” scheduled to run today through May 23.

The play offers a look at life in the White House for three first ladies: Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon and Betty Ford.

Staged outdoors in the Lucie Stern Community Center’s patio, the production combines in-person performances with online video access.

Palo Alto Players’ artistic director Patrick Klein directs three Bay Area actresses making their return to the company: Gwendolyne Wagner (as Lady Bird Johnson), Gabriella Goldstein (Pat Nixon) and Patricia Tyler (Betty Ford).

In-person performances are slated 7 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays, 2 and 7 p.m. Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays. On-demand streaming runs 9 a.m. May 19 through 11:59 May 23.

Limited in-person tickets are $40; on-demand streaming access is $20.
