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! Below is 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.
3030 Vision Project
We recently put out a call for proposals for folks who were inspired to create a 3-5 minute video of what theatre and the world could look like in the next 30 years using one of the 150+ plays we’ve created over the last three decades as their creative spark.
We were blown away, not just by the number of proposals, but also by their breadth and depth. We plan to start releasing the selected proposals on July 8, 2021 - the anniversary of the first show we opened back in 1992! The beginning is NEAR!LEARN MORE
Little Theater, Big Podcast
In the coming weeks and months, we'll be featuring artist interviews and audio recordings of plays and scenes on our new podcast. To subscribe, search for "Shotgun Players" on Apple Podcasts, or listen to individual episodes below!LISTEN TO THE PODCAST
A newly devised theatre piece inspired by Chekhov’s Three Sisters. Live music, movement, and text creates an original exploration of Chekhov’s lasting themes of memories fading, revolutions looming, and visions of the future beckoning. There will be laughter through tears, a gun in act one, and the end of an era.
Directed by Mark Jackson & Beth Wilmurt
Originally performed in March - April 2019
