The Shotgun Studios

1201 University (at Curtis)

In 2015 Shotgun Players opened the Shotgun Studios—a rehearsal space for Shotgun Players, and a creative hub for other emerging performing arts groups. This mammoth effort by our community of patrons and artists is a stake in the ground to say: we aren’t going anywhere. The Bay Area is a place where artists can come to practice, train, or just have fun.
