Senior Center to host ‘Man Behind the Cheap Mask’ @ Sheridan Senior Center
May 5 @ 1:30 pm – May 7 @ 1:30 pm

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.

Civic Theatre Guild to produce ‘Yankee Tavern @ Carriage House Theater
May 6 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

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.

May 7 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am

SHERIDAN — The 13th annual Beaver Creek Slide and fourth annual Beaver Creek Bike Slog will take place May 7. The Sheridan Community Homeless Shelter, operated by Volunteers of America, will receive $12.50 of each individual’s entry fee.

Last year’s races had competitors from across Wyoming, Montana and South Dakota.

Races include a half marathon and 3.5-mile walk/run. The half marathon is a loop course covering primarily dirt and gravel roads along the scenic Big Horn Mountain foothills. The 3.5-mile course loops through Wild Turkey and Beaver Creek subdivisions. The courses are well marked and have aid stations.

Walkers for the half marathon start at 8 a.m. while runners start at 9 a.m. The 3.5 milers start at 10 a.m. Bike racers take the same course as the half marathon and do two loops starting at 8 a.m. Bikers should yield to runners and stay on the right side of the road while runners stay to the left.

Races will start at the Dahlin residence at 12 S. Sharptailed Road.

The entry fee is $30, payable to Wyoming Innovation. Entry forms can be picked up at the Sports Stop in Sheridan or via email by contacting bdahlin@wyoming.com.

Each entrant receives a long sleeved T-shirt. Lunch is provided, and door prizes will be drawn after the race. Awards go to the top three finishers in each race for men and women.
