Shotgun Players

Art in the time of Coronavirus


Perhaps you, like us, are getting tired of scrolling through Netflix, have just finished that 1,000 piece puzzle, or just miss having live theatre in your life.

We can't provide live theatre at the moment, but we can definitely provide art! Click Here for a collection of Shotgun performances, past and present. All are free unless otherwise specified.

Before you jump in, we ask that you consider making a donation to Shotgun Players for the amount you might pay for a ticket. Your donation helps us keep the mortgage (and our artists & staff) paid as we wait until it's safe for us to re-open our doors.

Shotgun Players is a company of artists determined to create bold, relevant, affordable theatre that inspires and challenges audience and artist alike to re-examine our lives, our community, and the ever-changing world around us. 

They believe that it’s not enough to create exceptional theatre; they are also committed to making a difference in the community. Shotgun Players is dedicated to keeping ticket prices affordable, and offer pay-what-you-can performances for the opening week of each production. Through the Make a Difference (M.A.D.) campaign, Shotgun Players is able to offer $5 tickets to patrons who are 25 years of age and younger.
