That's what it was to be alive.
December 4 - January 11
EXTENDED to January 25!

Wilder graduated from Berkeley High in 1915, and Shotgun is proud to bring this classic to The Ashby Stage. Even if you think you know Our Town, we guarantee that you’ll experience something new – after all, no one breaks down the classics like we do. With live music throughout, we will find the heartbeat of every line, every word. “That's what it was to be alive...To be always at the mercy of one self-centered passion, or another.”

Running time: 2 hours and 30 minutes, with two intermissions

"It’s a hit for the Shotgun Players." - Berkeleyside

"I’ve never seen a more satisfying, engaging production." -  Piedmont Post

"Masterful work." - Tweet from Tappan Wilder.

"This is an Our Town not to be missed." -  San Jose Mercury News

"It’s hard to imagine Wilder doing anything but giving this cast a standing ovation." - Lou Fancher, SF Weekly
