Mission Statement

The Shotgun Players is an ensemble of theatre artists on a mission to create bold, relevant, affordable theatre. We believe in the power of theatre as a mechanism through which we and our community examine ourselves and the world.

Description

In 1992 five artists with a passion for theater started a new company in the basement of LaVal's Pizza in Berkeley. From the beginning there was a commitment to making bold, innovative -and affordable theatre. Our vision for the company incorporates the ideal of breaking down theater to its essential elements: strong scripts that speak to our community; dedicated actors willing to take risks; designers and directors eager to work with an ensemble. Since then we have grown to a company of over 20 artists and have produced over 80 plays, many of them critically acclaimed, award-winning treatments of contemporary works, classics, and new plays. We produce at least two original plays each season.

We are slated to become the first 100% solar-powered theatre in the United States.
