Urinetown: The Musical, Main Campus Theater (1600 bldg.)
Fri., Oct. 14: 7:30 p.m.
Sat., Oct. 15: 7:30 p.m.
Sun., Oct. 16: 3 p.m.
Presented by Shoreline Community College and the Musical and Opera Program, this production is made possibly by the generous support of the Student Leadership Center.

Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critic’s Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards, and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective of one of America’s greatest art forms.

In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides he’s had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!

Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, Urinetown catapults the “comedic romp” into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit, and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.

Sundays – 3pm

Tickets are available at brownpapertickets.com or at the door.

Other examples of soft skills: Communicating well verbally, as well as non-verbally. Making good decisions. Adaptability. Problem solving. Commitment, Flexibility, Time Management. There are even more, and we’ll touch on a few this Friday, with Shoreline Senior Center volunteer and longtime Roundtable contributor, Ed Cruver. Do you react when criticized, or calmly consider the criticism? How well do you handle pressure? Do you see things from other’s perspectives? Ed will cover this and more, and of course we’d love to hear your own examples of soft skills and how best to put them to work. Great coffee and treats, compliments of Central Market, and always free!

Tutoring services is actively seeking tutors in most subjects for fall quarter. Here’s your chance to give back to your fellow students while earning some extra cash and experience for your resume!

Some courses are regularly in high demand, so we need lots of tutors to keep up (e.g.,computer science, statistics, ESL, and nursing). Some subjects get fewer requests, but we also have a harder time finding tutors to fill them (e.g., geology, geography, astronomy, oceanography, political science, and business technology). We also need tutors to help students with most other subjects, from math, accounting, economics, engineering, biology, chemistry, and physics to English, other languages, communication studies, music/music technology, philosophy, and VCT. We especially benefit from students who feel comfortable tutoring multiple subjects and plan to be on campus for at least a couple more quarters.

Please consider applying online or in person in 1103 where we’ll be located and open for applications and inquiries during most of the summer break.

Thank you!

This Thursday’s Job Seekers’ Roundtable: Four Factors of Entrepreneurial Goal Setting, with Tiffany McVeety

It’s never too late to start a business. In fact, according to a 2014 Kauffman Foundation study, plus 50 workers have launched their own businesses at a higher rate than 20-34 year-olds every year since 1996. And “[b]usiness owners ages 55-64 represented more than 23% of new entrepreneurs” in 2012. As more boomers retire, this number is predicted to grow.

We’re changing the ways we think about work, careers and starting businesses.

Tiffany will explain the nuts and bolts of getting a Four Point Plan together, and how you can put your interests and hobbies to work for you. As always, tasty refreshments and our Conversation Starter blend of coffee will be served. Hope to see you there!
