First things first:

Thank you for donating to the Shotgun Players. Ticket revenues cover less than half the real cost of creating live theatre. We rely on tax-deductible contributions from generous patrons like you to produce the kind of theatre that keeps Berkeley theatre on the map, ticket prices affordable, and you coming back for more. When you make a gift to Shotgun, you join a community of patrons passionate about sustaining arts in the Bay Area.

Make a contribution today and you'll enjoy an array of donor benefits all season long.
