Shariba Rivers

Shariba Rivers, a Chicago actor with both film and stage credits, is thrilled to join The New Colony’s core ensemble. Most recently, she may have read your tarot cards as Lady Montague in (re)discover theatre’s FAREWELL MY FRIEND or you may have seen her bring Gertrude “to life” in The New Colony’s production of THE TERRIBLE. Shariba is affiliated with four other companies—Waltzing Mechanics, 20% Theatre, MPAACT, and (re)discover theatre—in addition to having worked with various other theaters across the city. Her feature-length film FOR THE CAUSE is now available on Amazon and was most recently on Chicago PD’s Season 4 premiere. Shariba is incredibly lucky to have a very supporting husband, two children, and two dogs who all keep her highly motivated and encouraged. Keep up with her at
