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.
Founding Artistic Director Patrick Dooley started the company in 1992 with ten eager actors and a bucket of black paint. Before finding our permanent home at the Ashby Stage in 2004, Shotgun Players performed in 44 different spaces, always striving for the same core values we believe in today: artistic excellence, social relevance, and community engagement. Nothing excites us more than taking on projects that other companies might deem too expensive, too unwieldy, or just plain impossible. As a result, audience and industry members alike have come to expect astonishing theatre from Shotgun Players.
We believe that it's not enough to create exceptional theatre; we're also committed to making a difference in our community. Shotgun Players is dedicated to keeping ticket prices affordable, and we offer pay-what-you-can performances for the opening week of each production. Through our Make a Difference (M.A.D.) campaign, we are able to offer $7 tickets to our patrons who are 25 years of age and younger. We also take pride in supporting local businesses! We feature goods from our neighbors in our lobby, and we offer programming that speaks directly to our neighbors by putting their stories onstage.
