GCC THEATRE SEASON OPENS
WITH PAIR OF ABSURDIST PLAYS

     “The Bald Soprano” by Eugene Ionesco and Samuel Beckett’s “Play” will be presented by the Glendale Community College Theatre Arts Department on the Auditorium Mainstage beginning Oct. 9.
The production will run through Oct. 19 with shows at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and at 2 p.m. on Sunday.
     Tickets are $15 general admission and $12 for students and seniors, including the $2 convenience fee. Tickets may be purchased online at www.glendalearts.org or at the box office.
     With a new translation by Pulitzer Prize finalist Tina Howe, Ionesco’s “The Bald Soprano” throws together a British middle-class family, their guests, their maid and a fire chief. It is an absurdist take on the problems of conversation in modern society.
     Beckett’s “Play” involves three urns side by side containing two women and a man. This abstract play reflects on an experience that ended unhappily for a man, his wife and his mistress as they each recount his or her own version of the truth.

GCC MEASURE G BOND REFINANCE
SAVES GLENDALE TAXPAYERS

     Glendale Community College recently refinanced general obligation bonds from Measure G resulting in $2.943 million savings to taxpayers.
     The college placed Measure G on the ballot in 2002, authorizing the issuance of $98 million of General Obligation bonds. This measure was supported by the Glendale community and the college was able to repair and upgrade its facilities at the main campus and the Garfield Campus.
     Projects that received Measure G funds included the parking structure, the Garfield Campus expansion, the Health Sciences Building and the Planetarium.
     The Measure G Citizens’ Oversight Committee, appointed by the college district's Board of Trustees, monitors all projects and expenditures approved by Measure G.
     The college periodically reviews market conditions to see if the taxpayers would realize any savings by refinancing any previous Measure G bond issues. A refinance consists of issuing new bonds and using the proceeds to pay off the existing bonds. The last review showed that there would be approximately $1.6 million in savings to the taxpayers by refinancing bonds issued in 2006. As a result, the Glendale Community College Board of Trustees approved the refinancing of these bonds at the May 2014 board meeting.
     The refinancing bonds went out to market last week. Market conditions improved and interest rates came down below those used in the review. The refinance bonds were issued at an effective rate of 3.113% as compared to 4.55% when the original bonds were issued. This refinance will save taxpayers approximately $2.943 million over the life of the bonds.
     For additional information, contact Ron Nakasone, Vice President, Administrative Services at 818-240-1000, ext. 5210.
