Welcome, Guest
BOX OFFICE TICKET TYPES
A ticket is a ticket, is a ticket, is a ticket.
That being said, not all tickets are the same here at Shotgun Players!
 
 
THE REGULAR TICKET

The Regular Ticket is by far the most popular, trendy, and self-explanatory ticket.  Regular ticket prices are priced dynamically and range between $20 - $50.  Ticket prices generally go up in value during the run of a production, so be sure to come earlier in the run if you want to save money on tickets! Regular tickets are available online and (depending on availability) at the door for all performances on or after Opening Night. (For tickets before Opening Night, please see the Pay What You Can ticket below!)







THE $5 M.A.D. ("Make a Difference") Ticket
 
We love introducing young people to theater and will do whatever we can to get you through the door! If you are 25 years olf or younger, you can show up at the theater an hour before showtime and see the show for just five dollars. If you walk up, keep in mind that it is a CASH ONLY ticket and is based on availability.
Thinking of planning ahead? Make a reservation online for any Thursday performance and select the MAD ticket when choosing seats. 
We only offer 25 of these $5 tickets for reservation every Thursday, so be sure to book in advance! 
MAD TICKET PURCHASERS MUST ARRIVE TO THEATER WITH ID IN HAND!

MAD tickets are generally not available for extension week performances. Call us at 510.841.6500x303 for more information

 


THE PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN TICKET

The Pay-What-You-Can-Ticket only comes out to play during Previews (i.e. performances before Opening Night). These tickets are genuine to their name: you can pay $1 or $100 – the choice is yours! If you’re looking for the national average, it’s about $15. 








THE SUBSCRIBER TICKET

Subscriber tickets are, simply put, the hottest tickets at Shotgun. These are the  tickets that  get all the perks –online access to the best seats, first dibs on performances, no ticket exchange fees for changes make more than 24 hours before their chosen performance, plus a lil’ extra love from The Box Office. Like your favorite pair of jeans, the Subscriber Ticket looks good on everyone. 









THE WALK-UP TICKET

The Walk-Up Ticket is, quite possibly, the most elusive ticket at Shotgun. This ticket can only be sold in person, the night of the performance, beginning  an hour before showtime, and is based on availability.  If the show is sold out, we have no Walk-Up Tickets available. The Walk-Up Ticket is CASH ONLY. But don’t worry, the journey across the street to our local ATM saves you a $2 credit card processing fee.







 
THE WAIT LIST TICKET
 
Say you walked up to the theater an hour before the performance and it is sold out. Don’t give up – have heart! There is a chance that we can get you in! The Wait List starts an hour before curtain time. Being on the Wait List does not guarantee you a ticket, BUT it does guarantee you a chance at a Walk Up ticket for a sold out performance. Please note that the Wait List Ticket is CASH ONLY. After putting your name on the list, you’ll have plenty of time to scrape together the dough.





THE GROUP DISCOUNT TICKET
 
Planning your next family reunion? School field trip? Tech industry outing? Nothing says memorable quite like a night at the theater! We would be happy to extend a $3 discount per ticket on groups of 10 or more. If you like to plan in advance, and you play your cards right, you could even rent out the whole theater. Contact the Box Office at 510.841.6500x303 for the next steps!

Bringing a school group? Look at "The School Group Discount Ticket" below for a special offer.





THE EARLY BIRD COMP TICKET
 
If you became a Subscriber early in the season, you will receive an additional Early Bird free ticket to bring a friend! These lucky subscribers know who they are, and their Early Bird tickets are automatically added to their online accounts. Also, it’s good to note that these tickets can only be redeemed within the original run of a performance.

Not applicable for extension shows.




 

THE PRESS TICKET
 
Got a few things to say? We want to hear them. Contact the Box Office in advance with your credentials and let’s see if we can set something up – on us.
 

 





THE PRODUCTION SPONSOR TICKET
 
A small group of incredible people sign up to be Production Sponsors for each of our six shows every year. One of the great many benefits of being a Production Sponsor is the ability to bring friends with you for free on Opening Night and show them your unique flare for the extracurricular. Find out more about getting ahold of these rare Production Sponsor Tickets here.





THE SCHOOL GROUP DISCOUNT TICKET
 
Want to bring your student group to the theatre? We'd love to have you! If you can't make it on a Thursday night (when MAD tickets are available) or if members of your group are older than 25 years old, you can still save 25% on the listed ticket price with the School Group Discount. Learn more and make your reservation by contacting the Box Office directly at 510.841.6500x303

 


Whew, that was a lot... and we still have just a bit more:

The only way to place a reservation for a confirmed seat is to pay in full by credit card in advance. There is a $2 credit card fee per ticket here at Shotgun Players – no exceptions. This $2 is not going towards our future underground, speakeasy bar tab (we wish). This $2 is going directly back to the ticketing software that makes our Box Office tick!
