Dean Scott Discusses Saving for College with Fox 13

Salt Lake Community College Dean of the School of Arts, Communication and Media Richard Scott visited Fox 13 to talk about the importance of saving for college early and tools to help people make higher education more affordable.

For the 2017-18 school year, the average cost for in-state residents at a public university is more than $9,600. That cost increases significantly for private institutions and out-of-state residents. College costs include a plethora of expenses, such as tuition, meals, books, supplies, transportation and housing.

Grand Theatre Offers Perdida, Adaptation of Shakespeare Play

The Grand Theatre will host Perdida, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale. The show runs Oct. 12 - 28.
With book and lyrics written by Kathleen Cahill and music by Deborah Wicks La Puma, the production is set in pre-revolutionary Mexico. As the drama of Shakespeare merges with the Latino style of magical realism in this new musical, you’ll be taken to a world filled with spirits, telling a story of passion, jealousy, and redemption.
When a powerful don believes that his pregnant wife has been unfaithful, his reaction affects him and his newborn daughter for the rest of their lives. It is only through the vision and courage of an abandoned child, Perdida, that all that was lost is finally found again. Dealing with themes of life and death, the story centers on Day of the Dead, the Mexican celebration where families gather together to celebrate their loved ones who have passed away.
