Let’s Talk About It: Understanding Anxiety
PUB 9102, 12:30-1:30 p.m.
Anxiety isn’t always a bad thing. In fact, a little anxiety can motivate you and help you stay focused under pressure, such as when taking an exam or driving your car on a dark and stormy night.  However, when anxiety takes over and interferes with daily activities, there may be cause for concern. The good news – recovery is possible and there are many things you can do to get your anxiety in check and regain control of your life.

Join Counseling Services at our interactive workshop and learn more about how to recognize and manage the signs and symptoms of anxiety for yourself or someone you care about.

Workshop is open to all and no RSVP needed.

Questions about the workshop? Contact Sheryl Copeland at or 206.533.6712.

The GAC Presents: China’s Urbanization and the “Left-behind” Children
PUB 9208, 7-8:30 p.m.
In China, a new generation of children is growing up in the countryside with only one or no parent around during most of the time of the year. They are called “left-behind children.” Their population has grown to more than 60 million; half of them are between age 6 and 14. They are left behind because their parents have gone to work in the city, often hundreds of miles away from home.  They are part of China’s gargantuan army of migrant workers, estimated at about 170 million in 2014.  These laborers power China’s economic machine and turn it into the “world’s factory’.  While they work in the city, their children often cannot be with them. Lacking day-to-day parental care and close guidance, the “left-behind” children face many problems and many of them get into trouble.  Some develop psychological problems; others fall victims to bullying, physical or sexual abuse, or even serious accidents.

This presentation explains how China’s special, “incomplete” urbanization policy and the hukou (household registration) system function in concert to produce a generation of “left-behind” children and “migrant children,” and their implications.

Join us, together with Kam Wing Chan, Geography Department, University of Washington, discuss about the difficulties the “left-behind children” of China faces. To learn more about our speaker. visit our biographies page.

night music
Shoreline Community College’s Musical theater department presents their 2016 Opera Workshop with Stephen Sondheim’s 19th century romantic waltz-based operetta/musical,  “A Little Night Music!”

Clive Barnes in the New York Times called the musical “heady, civilized, sophisticated and enchanting.”

The Telegraph wrote that “Sondheim’s lyrics are often superbly witty, his music here, mostly in haunting waltz-time, far more accessible than is sometimes the case. The score positively throbs with love, regret and desire.”

Winner of a Tony for Best Musical and Best Musical Score!

Sondheim creates a stunning tour de force when he takes Ingmar Bergman’s comedy of manners, Smiles of a Summer Night, and turns it into a musical of masterful execution and elegance. Winner of four Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Musical Score, this is a musical work that has forever entranced the world of theatre.

Set in 1900 Sweden, A Little Night Music explores the tangled web of affairs centered around actress Desirée Armfeldt and the men who love her: a lawyer by the name of Fredrik Egerman and the Count Carl-Magnus Malcom. When the traveling actress performs in Fredrik’s town, the estranged lovers’ passion rekindles. This strikes a flurry of jealousy and suspicion between Desirée, Fredrik, Fredrick’s wife, Anne, Desirée’s current lover, the Count, and the Count’s wife, Charlotte. Both men — as well as their jealous wives — agree to join Desirée and her family for a weekend in the country at Desirée’s mother’s estate. With everyone in one place, infinite possibilities of new romances and second chances bring endless surprises.

A Little Night Music is full of hilarity, witty and heartbreakingly moving moments of adoration, regret and desire. This dramatic musical celebration of love is perfect to showcase our talented cast of singers and actors, with it’s harmonically-advanced score and masterful orchestrations. And, it contains Sondheim’s popular song, the haunting “Send in the Clowns.”
