A little more about the theme

Flapper dress

The roaring 20s, while known as an age of glitz and glamour, were also full of dramatic social and political change. It was the birth of what we know of today as pop culture. People started listening to the same music, dancing the same moves, and using the same slang words. Young women were shortening their hair, skirts, and participating in “unladylike” behavior, like voting. With this new “racy” culture, came a backlash of conservatism.

On January 17, 1920, the 18th Amendment went into effect, which prohibited the sale of alcohol. Drinking had become a symbol of what people disliked about this new modernity. The thought was that by eliminating it, it would turn back the clock to what they considered a greater time. It didn’t work.

We at Shotgun, are determined to always be a place that celebrates and embraces the future. One of the ways we accomplish that is through our Make a Difference program.

The beneficiaries of the Make a Difference program, M.A.D. fellows and audience members, are that future for Shotgun Players and our local arts community.

We hope you’ll put on your dancing shoes, pearls, bowties, or fedoras and join us for a truly memorable evening.
