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.
Recordings of Past Productions
We'll be releasing previously recorded videos of our favorite past productions weekly on Fridays and we'll keep them live for two weeks.
Here are the current productions on offer:
Dr. Irving Baer and his daytime television show reach millions of women across America. They rely on him for everything from weight loss tips to how they can manifest their destinies. When a take-down piece of journalism goes viral, one thing becomes clear: if Baer is going to fall from grace, he's bringing everyone else with him.

We are so excited to announce that we will release Quack will be available to stream after it finishes its live run! Stay tuned for more information.
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 2019WATCH

A Sonnet a Day
Shakespeare wrote 154 of these. Hopefully, this crisis will be over before we finish getting through them all. In any event, we thought this would be a nice way for all of us to stay connected.

2 Minutes in 2 Days
Our FIRST EVER teeny tiny two-minute super site-specific theatre festival! Between April 17 and 19, we invited folks to make a 2-minute-or-less video that included all of the following elements:
- A representation of time
- 10 seconds of movement
- Some text from a play
- Either toilet paper or a mask
