WYO Theater kicking off

SHERIDAN — The WYO Theater kicks off their 2013-2014 Children’s and Educational Series Thursday at 6:30 p.m. with “Tomas and the Library Lady.”

Based on the book by Pat Mora, “Tomas and the Library Lady” is the true story of Tomas Rivera.

This stage production is written by playwright José Cruz Gonzáles and will be performed by Arizona-based Childsplay, a professional theatre company for young audiences and families.

Childsplay Founder and Artistic Director David Saar will direct.

Tickets are $14 for adults, $8 for students and $5 for children 12 and under.
