Perdida Begins 'Backstage' Run at Grand Theatre

Sword fight. Magic. A death scene. Live music. Romance. And
colorful masks! The production of Perdida has all of that and more, running Oct. 12-28 at the Grand Theatre on Salt Lake Community College's South City Campus. Perdida is based on Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale, only it's set in pre-revolutionary Mexico, where powerful dons ruled like kings. Themes of passion, jealousy and redemption unfold in "the Latino style of magical realism, using a variety of traditional musical forms." Within the more intimate setting of the Backstage at the Grand series, theatergoers will enjoy live music, acting, singing and lots of dancing. For more information, click here.
