‘Young Frankenstein’ Continues SLCC Grand Theatre’s 25th Anniversary Season

Salt Lake Community College’s Grand Theatre will host productions of “Young Frankenstein” Oct. 8-30, with evening performances at 7:30 p.m., Thursday through Saturday, and Saturday-only matinee performances at 2 p.m.

Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced "Fronk-en-steen") inherits his family's estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked side-kick, Igor (pronounced "Eye-gore"), and a leggy lab assistant, Inga (pronounced normally), Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. "It's alive!" he exclaims as he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather's. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity continuously abounds.

Tickets start at $14. Discounted tickets are available for seniors, students, veterans, teachers, and other groups.

Show Name: Young Frankenstein

When: October 8-30

Show times: 7:30 p.m., Thur.-Sat., 2 p.m. Sat.

VA Taps Successful SLCC Veterans Center To Hold Open House

The Veterans Administration’s Office of Field Operations recently recognized Salt Lake Community College’s “VetSuccess on Campus” (VSOC) program as one of 10 top-performing campuses chosen to hold open houses that showcased services colleges’ Veterans Services offices provide.

 The recent open house at SLCC included representatives from 17 service providers that included the Utah Department of Veterans and Military Affairs, GoArmyEd’s Education Services, the American Red Cross, Veterans Integration to Academic Leadership and the Utah National Guard. Almost 100 veterans and dependents signed in to the event.

“The open house was such a success, and so many of our veterans were served by holding this event. To have the VA see the success of our partnership is an honor,” said Darlene Head, SLCC manager of Veterans Services. “It is important for us to successfully work in partnership with the VA to best serve our student veterans. I am honored to be in partnership with them.”

VSOC vocational rehabilitation counselors provide academic and vocational guidance to vets, connecting them to other VA benefits that include health care and mental health services. Counselors also help service members, veterans and dependents apply for medical and nonmedical benefits.
