 To Theater Goers,

There will be no live performances for the SUMMER 2020 or FALL 2020 semester. 

Once on This Island will not perform in the Fall, either in the theater or some kind of adjusted online version. However, the next show we do in the theater, once we are all able to freely be back on campus and have audiences, will be Once On This Island.  In which case, Margo will direct and all cast members will get to keep their roles. Auditions will be held for those who are not able to do the show.


This summer we will be offering THTR 47 – College Theater Acting taught by Linda Amayo–Hassan. NO AUDITION REQUIRED. The course will be 6 weeks, going from June 15th to July 24th. Class will meet online from 2pm to 4pm Monday – Thursday, with other meeting times TBD. The course will focus on writing and creating original podcasts done in the style of episodic radio plays. Students will do voice recordings from home in recording sessions with professional recording engineer. Recording engineer will edit and add sound. Final podcasts will be uploaded onto Spotify and other audio sharing platforms for public streaming.

Course meets online M,T,W,TH from 2pm to 4pm with more hours TBD once course starts.


Chabot College is in the process of planning an adjusted fall schedule and guidelines for fall. But, the main thing to know is that mostly things will be online. For the Theater program, we are planning to be totally online, unless in the fall it seems that everything is completely safe for returning to campus. This does not, however, look very likely. So, all of our productions and classes will be meeting in an online format.

During this time, you may show your support for the Theater Arts Department by making a donation! We are continuing our mission to innovate and present to you a new kind of theater by launching our first podcast series. Your generous gift of any amount would be greatly appreciated as we navigate new creative ways to bring you Chabot Theater!  



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.Interested in seeing a performance? See our show dates below!
