Welcome, Guest


Sassafras World's Fair

Join us as we shake things up with interactive games, themed raffles, and adventurous live auction prizes!

The World’s Fairs were international exhibitions of scientific, technological, and artistic achievements. They were known to showcase innovations that were sneak peeks into what life in the future would hold.

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. The support we give them today is the groundwork for the “world of tomorrow.”

If you have any questions, please contact, Brady Brophy-Hilton, development associate, at brady@shotgunplayers.org.
