Grand Theatre Presents Christmas Double Bill

The first annual “Two Crutch Christmas Double Bill” presents Amahl and the Night Visitors and A Christmas Carol in one show Dec. 1-3 at Salt Lake Community College’s Grand Theatre, 1575 South State Street, Salt Lake City. Shows are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights and a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday.

Amahl and the Night Visitors

Music and original English Liberetto by Gian Carlo Menotti

Main Stage, Opera, Limited Engagement in partnership with the University of Utah School of Music & Sinfonia Salt Lake

An opera in one act, the show was commissioned by NBC and first performed by the NBC Opera Theatre on December 24, 1951, in New York City at Rockefeller Center, where it was broadcast live on television from that venue as the debut production of the Hallmark Hall of Fame. The story centers around Amahl, a disabled boy who can only walk with a crutch and has a problem with telling tall tales. One night he is amazed when he sees three splendidly dressed kings, the Magi on their way to witness the birth of the Christ child, standing outside his door. This charming and heartwarming story, told through the eyes of a child, is a delight for audiences of all ages.

A Christmas Carol

Book by, Charles Dickens. Music and Lyrics by Anthony Buck & Mike Leavitt

Join us for the world premiere of Leavitt and Buck’s “A Christmas Carol,” a new adaptation of the classic Dickens novel presented in one act. You won’t want to miss this beautiful performance.

Arrival of Scholarship Funds Celebrated at Consulate of Mexico

Salt Lake Community College’s Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs Director Shellie Jo Enscoe and other SLCC staff members gathered at the Consulate of Mexico in Salt Lake City to accept a ceremonial $9,000 check from the IME Becas Scholarship fund.

The check from IME Becas represents matching funds that are being added to $10,000 raised by a small group of SLCC staff members who last year coordinated the first Bruin Becas Scholarship Dinner - funds raised during that dinner were matched by an anonymous donor. SLCC was awarded the matching funds from IME Becas for students who are Mexican and/or from Mexican origin. Applications for those scholarships are currently available.
