Students Shine in Grand Youth Showcase

Students from Eisenhower Junior High take a bow.

Their performances were creative. Unique. Culled from the minds of more than 60 students from seven schools.

For eight weeks this past fall, young students attended Salt Lake Community College’s annual Grand Youth After-School Theatre program once a week. In each class held at SLCC’s South City Campus, they collaborated on, wrote and produced their own shows while learning a variety of theatre techniques. It all culminated in seven performances on the Grand Theatre stage on a Tuesday night in November in front of family and friends.

For the 2019 fall showcase, the following schools took part: Entheos Kearns, Youth City Fairmont Park, Eisenhower Junior High, Summit Academy, Salt Lake Center for Science Education, Glendale Middle School and Horizante.

The Grand Theatre prides itself on being a “theatre for the community,” offering professional-quality productions showcasing local talent, educational outreach programs and community partnerships. Students who take part in Grand Youth programs receive free tickets to exclusive student matinees at the Grand Theatre and post-performance talks with directors, actors, technicians and administrators.

Students interested in Grand Youth programs may also choose to attend a two-week theatre summer camp (with performance, technical and musical theatre tracks) for grades 7-12 and take part in after-school theatre programs throughout the year through the Grand Theatre.

The Grand Youth Showcase is presented by SLCC’s School of Arts, Communication & Media. For more information about Grand Youth opportunities, visit email
