WEATHER FROM OUR SPONSORS
SHERIDAN — The Young at Heart Players at the Sheridan Senior Center will produce the melodrama entitled “The Paper Bag Bandit Rides Again” or “The Man Behind the Cheap Mask” by Robert Swift.
The play will be performed May 5, 6 and 7 at 1:30 p.m.
What seems to be the question on everyone’s lips in the desert town of Goose Creek? Is it, “Who is that Masked Man?” Well…uh…no. It’s “Who in the world is in that paper bag?”
The play features a cast of 17 loony characters and a daffy plot guaranteed to keep a laugh on your lips.
Director Pat Tomsovic is excited to showcase a very talented group of thespians, both old and new to the stage. The melodrama is sponsored by Tandem Productions.
The cost to attend is a $2 suggested donation.
The Sheridan Senior Center is located at 211 Smith St.
SHERIDAN — The Civic Theatre Guild will open Yankee Tavern, a play by Steven Dietz, at the Carriage House Theater on May 6 at 7:30 p.m.
“Yankee Tavern” is set in a run-down Manhattan bar, five years after the attacks of 9/11, while the memory of the event is still a fresh wound. The most frequent patron of the bar extols his vast array of conspiracy theories at the slightest prodding, and on this day, a stranger visits the bar, who seems to verify some of these theories specifically regarding 9/11.
This suspenseful mind-bender will have you laughing one minute and on the edge of your seat the next.
“This play really explores a lot of ground worth covering,” director Aaron Odom said. “Hopefully, the ideas put forth in this play will stick with the audiences for a long time after they’ve left the theater.”
The cast features John Goodell, Jennifer Reed, Spencer Walters and Josh Hanson. The show will run April 29-30 and May 1, 6-8, and 12-14 at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students, seniors and active military and can be purchased in advance at the WYO Theater box office, online at wyotheater.com or 30 minutes prior to the show’s commencement at the Carriage House Theater box office.
The Carriage House Theater is located at 419 Delphi Ave.
