We believe art is essential to a healthy and humane society.

Patrick Dooley

That includes making sure our artists are also healthy! We’re creating a Shotgun Players Fair Wage Fund so we can nearly double artists’ salaries in 2020. If artists can’t afford to live in the Bay Area, we all lose.

But that’s not all. Making great art is foremost on our minds, but we also want to make the Ashby Stage more welcoming for everyone’s needs. That is why we have a bold, ambitious renovation plan for increased accessibility, a wider lobby, state of the art assistive listening devices, a new air conditioning system, AND upgrades for our theatrical lights and sound system! Plus SO much more.

The GREAT news is that (thanks to some visionary supporters!) we’ve already raised 80% of our 1.8 million dollar goal! We are SO CLOSE! Now we are in the grassroots phase to close the gap. Every dollar will make a difference. If everyone chips in — even a bit — we can build a better future for our artists, and a better experience for everyone who enters the Ashby Stage.

Let’s do this!
