SAN FRANCISCO YOUTH THEATRE PRESENTS...
IN & OUT OF SHADOWS by Gary Soto
Performed by SF Youth Theatre DREAM Ensemble
Directed by Cliff Mayotte • Music by Emily Klion & George Brooks
IN & OUT OF SHADOWS, a musical by famed Chicano writer Gary Soto, is based on interviews with Bay Area DREAMers, who dream and despair as they navigate the shadows of immigration policies. Set to a vibrant musical score, In & Out of Shadows tells the story of what it feels like to be undocumented. San Francisco Youth Theatre's DREAM ensemble actors bring their personal experience to the stage, mixing English, Spanish, Tagalog, Spanglish and other languages as they tell their stories with passion and humor.
I loved absolutely everything about this show. It made me happy that there's people out there just like me. That know what I'm going through. The things I have to go through everyday. I personally think they should play it everywhere. -Golden Valley High School DREAMer, Bakersfield, CA
