Shot in the Dark Productions was founded by Susan Barber as a theatre production company known for murder mysteries and musicals.
After a hiatus, “Shot” was revived when Sue retired from teaching. 2015/2016 saw three new productions: The Who’s TOMMY, West Side Story, and Cabaret.
During the summer of 2016, Sue passed away.
“Shot in the Dark” continues with her friends and team members, who were along for the ride with the previous season, at the helm.
Shot in the Dark’s “Production Partners” are:
“Shot” is also proud to include many of Sue’s close friends and “theatre family” members, all of whom love and miss her dearly.
Our goal is to produce creative and engaging theatre that speaks to the community and brings people together.
Sue always reminded us of the famous saying for making great theatre: “All you need is two boards and a passion.” Whether it’s a main stage show or a murder mystery, a concert or a one-act black box performance, we’re committed to Sue’s vision: find good people, create a family and let great moments happen on stage.
Everyone, we believe, has something to offer if only they are given the opportunity to do so. “Shot in the Dark” is that opportunity.
