Shotgun Players Ticket Types

Regular Tickets

Regular tickets are priced dynamically and range between $20–$50. Prices generally go up during the run of a production. So come early in the run if you want to save money on tickets! Regular tickets are available online and at the door for all performances on or after opening night. Tickets can be purchased at the door on the night of the performance—an hour before showtime—subject to availability. If a show is sold out, there's still a chance that we can get you in! The wait list starts an hour before curtain time.

For tickets before opening night, please see the pay-what-you-can ticket below!

Discounted Tickets

Pay-What-You-Can Ticket

The pay-what-you-can ticket only comes out to play during previews (performances before opening night). These tickets are genuine to their name: you can pay $1 or $100—the choice is yours!

$15 Community Tickets

We believe live theatre has the power to open minds, lift spirits, and fill us with wonder and joy. That means it must be affordable to all. We know the distribution of wealth in our culture is random and unfair. With that in mind, if our regular admission price is an obstacle to you enjoying a night at our theater, then please use the $15 Community Ticket! If someday you don't need it, then please spread the word to those who do so they can also join us! TOGETHER we can make the theater a place where EVERYONE is welcome.

In order to reach as many people as possible, we offer two Community Tickets per person/order, and have up to ten tickets available for each performance. We ask for your support in respecting these guidelines to keep these tickets as accessible to those who need them.

You can reserve these tickets in advance by using the discount code COMMUNITY online, or by contacting the box office at or 510.841.6500 x303.


$7 M.A.D. (Make a Difference) Ticket

We make a lot of theatre with and for young folks, so we want to do everything we can to make it affordable for them. If you're 25 and under, you can get into ANY performance for $7! When selecting your seats, click on the red discount code button and enter MADTIX to unlock the discounted tickets. Be sure to bring your ID to the Will Call booth, and you're all set to enjoy a night of amazing theater!

Also, keep an eye out for MAD NIGHTS where we offer our 25-and-younger patrons FREE pizza and drinks, including beer for those 21 and older. Spread the word!

$20 Artist Ticket

If you've worked on a production in the performing arts in the last year, bring us a screenshot with your name on it to get a $20 ticket to any show! You can reserve these tickets in advance by booking online using the promo code CALLBOARD or by contacting the box office at or 510.841.6500 x303.

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 ten or more. If you like to plan in advance and you play your cards right, you could even rent out the whole theater. Bringing a school group? You save 25% on the listed ticket price. For group tickets, make your reservation by contacting the box office directly at or 510.841.6500 x303.

Shotgun-Lovers Tickets

Production Sponsor Ticket

Every year, a small group of incredible people sign up to be production sponsors for each of our six shows. One of the many benefits of being a production sponsor is the ability to bring friends with you for free on opening night. Learn more about becoming a production sponsor.
