Salt Lake Community College’s Grand Theatre is presenting Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize winning play “The Skin of Our Teeth,” March 12-28.

Wilder’s dramatic play first opened in 1942 at the Shubert Theatre. The production was a success and it moved that same year to Broadway. The plot centers on a family in a fictional New Jersey town and follows a three-part allegory structure that draws from the Biblical story of Cain and Abel.

There will be evening performances Thursday-Saturday each week during the play’s run and at 2 p.m. each Saturday, and tickets are $14-$20. For more information or to purchase tickets by phone, call 801-957-3322.

The final event at the Grand this season will be the Ted Swindley play “Always…Patsy Cline,” May 7-23.

The Grand Theatre is a 1,100-seat venue located at Salt Lake Community College’s historic South City Campus, home of the innovative, state-of-the-industry Center for Arts and Media at 1575 South State Street in Salt Lake City. The Grand was chosen by Sundance Institute to be a screening venue during the 2015 Film Festival. The theatre dates back to the 1930s when it was part of South High School, which SLCC purchased in 1989, a year after the school closed. The Grand began offering productions that year and has since, with great care and expense, retained its Depression-era charm and attraction while also incorporating the latest technology in lighting and sound. Every season the Grand is host to award-winning theatre and dance productions and concerts that attract arts enthusiasts from all along the Wasatch Front. Students and faculty in the arts at SLCC’s South City Campus now enjoy and, as a result, excel from having access to the Grand’s nostalgic look and feel and the Center for Arts and Media all in one place.
