Shifts is a family play that explores the intersections of love, dedication, and dreams.  Barry has to face a harsh reality as he prepares to leave his home to follow his ambitions as a future filmmaker.  He is also on the verge of an artistic breakthrough as he discovers some new angles to making movies. The play employs a chorus and an ensemble to set the scene with social context. Family members are impacted when their mother Rosie is injured on her job and can’t return to work for an unseen amount of time. The play takes place in the present so COVID is raging on.

Cast: Arturo Garibay, Eric Chow, Isabelle Briant-Martinez, JC Iglesias-Bernd, Jerome White, Leena Alam, Markell Lewis, Nikky Griffiths, Ryan Kalugdan, Suchitra Sharma, Yesenia Villasenor

Theater Arts at Chabot is dedicated to serving theater students, the campus community and the community at large. In addition to courses in all the many areas of theater; Acting, Writing, Directing, Technical Theater, Voice, Movement, History and more, we offer a wide range of theater productions. Our mainstage theater productions give students the opportunity to use all the skills they are learning in other courses and apply them under the guidance of a faculty director.

While study in Theater Arts at Chabot College advance a student’s abilities as a theater artist, they also contribute to the growth of the whole person. Social consciousness, connection to self, personal responsibility, collaboration, creativity, problem solving under stress, critical thinking, are just of a few of the things participation in theater helps a student develop. Though many of our students go on to further study in theater as well as becoming professionals in the field, all of our students carry the lessons and memories they learned from their theater experiences into whatever they do next.
