We are so excited to welcome you to the Ashby Stage!

We commit to doing everything we can to keep our audiences, artists, and staff as safe as possible. As always, if you have questions, contact our box office at boxoffice@shotgunplayers.org or 510.841.6500 ext. 303.


Our COVID-19 policy is in accordance with guidelines provided by the State of California and City of Berkeley. At this time this means that masking is encouraged but not required. It also means vaccination checks are not required to see a performance. These policies will be updated if city guidelines change. 

All Shotgun performers and staff are fully vaccinated and performers receive regular weekly testing. While masks are optional at this time, we support every individual’s choice to wear a mask while enjoying the performance. Our theater has a new air filtration system, including a Reme HALO-LED ionized hydro-peroxide air cleaner. 

Masked Matinées

We understand that there are some theatergoers who are only comfortable gathering in large groups with masks. To make our performances accessible to as many people as possible, we offer a number of "Masked Matinée" performances where all audience members will be required to wear facemasks. Food and drink will still be available at our concessions and can be enjoyed outside, but there is no eating or drinking inside the theater during these performances. Upcoming mask-required dates:
