Community theatre group based in Sault Ste. Marie, ON.

We believe good theatre can happen anywhere: all you need is two boards and a passion.

Founded by the late, great Susan Barber as a vehicle for performing murder mysteries, Shot in the Dark has evolved over the years into a production company that focusses on theatrical performances, live entertainment, stage musicals and more.



From spectacle to intimate, comedic to dramatic, our musical productions have spanned a range of genres, decades and styles. Highlights include Matilda, The Who’s Tommy, West Side Story and Young Frankenstein.

Murder Mysteries

Our interactive murder mysteries are a big hit with audiences everywhere. Whether performed as dinner theatre or presented at social gatherings for special occasions or at corporate events, we guarantee a fun, exciting, and, above all, a memorable night out.


Producing plays has been an exciting alternative to our many musical productions. Some of our favourites include Noises Off! and Lend Me a Tenor. When it comes to live theatre, we always aim to entertain and engage.


We believe our community has a lot to offer. Nothing makes us prouder than supporting the many amazing charities based in Algoma. We partner with a different group for each production to raise money for them with Opening Night Galas, Trivia Nights, Game Events and more.

Everyone has something to offer, we say, if only they are given the opportunity to do so. We believe that Shot is an opportunity for everyone in our community to get involved with their creative side and explore the performing arts.

Join us for upcoming events in the audience, as an actor, or behind-the-scenes!

Let’s create something together.
