Segment 1:

Thirty-seven years after its premiere, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” remains a cult classic. Part sci-fi, part horror and all camp, the rock musical continues to dominate the midnight movie market and for the past 25 years, Susan Steffee has been Utah’s emcee, making her the longest-running Rocky Horror host in the nation. On Monday, Steffee and others join us to talk about the enduring appeal of Salt Lake Film Society’s Halloween tradition.

Guests:

 

Check out “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” on Oct. 26, Oct. 27 and Oct. 31 at 8 p.m. and midnight at the Tower Theater, 900 S. 876 East, Salt Lake City.

Segment 2:

Music, dance, theater and art can be moving, inspiring, troubling and prompt reflection in individuals. So what can the arts do on a larger scale? Westminster College’s new Center for the Arts hopes to find out. The center, to be located in the Old Garfield School in Salt Lake City, will work to promote the arts and arts education in the broader community. On Monday, we’ll find out more about the center’s mission and how engagement with art and artists can enhance neighborhoods and society.

Guest:

  • Dr. David Dynak, Westminster College
  • Dr. Peggy Cain, Westminster College

 

The Westminster College Arts & Community Symposium will be held Oct. 23-24 at Westminster College, 1840 S. 1300 East, Salt Lake City.
