The Eccles Center for the Performing Arts will present a special screening of Richard Robbins' documentary "Girl Rising" on Wednesday, March 20, at 7 p.m. A question-and-answer session with Robbins will follow. The film, which features narration by Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Selena Gomez, Salma Hayak and Alica Keys, is about girls from around the world, who are striving beyond circumstance, pushing past limits and demonstrating the extraordinary strength of the human spirit to overcome the odds. The film also carries a powerful message: if we educate girls, we can change the future of some 66 million girls who today only dream of going to school. Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for students ages 12 and 18. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the 10 x 10 Fund that promotes educating girls through its NGO partners. Tickets can be purchased by calling (435) 655-3114 or at the Eccles Center box office.
