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.

Ucross hosting new art exhibit @ Ucross Foundation Art Gallery
May 7 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

UCROSS — A new exhibition, (We)st Maria Rose & E.K. Wimmer, opened at the Ucross Foundation Art Gallery on Monday.

The multidisciplinary exhibit features 20 paintings by Maria Rose, along with photographs, collages and video by Wimmer, representing 20 years of relationship between the two artists.

As they state, “(We)st follows the trajectory of two lives intertwined, exploring different perspectives on shared experiences. Measuring the course of our relationship over two decades and four Western states: New Mexico, Colorado, Montana and Wyoming…the art reflects the highs and lows of a shared life: marriage, education, children, loss, growth and change.”

A reception for the artists will take place May 7 from 4-6 p.m. The event, which is open to the public at no charge, will include a gallery talk by Maria Rose and Wimmer at 4:15 p.m. The talk will be followed by music performed by a string trio affiliated with the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra.

The exhibition will be on display through June 10 and is supported in part by a grant from the Wyoming Arts Council, through funding from the Wyoming State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts. Award-winning Wyoming writer Nina McConigley, author of Cowboys and East Indians, has written the exhibition essay.

The Ucross Foundation Art Gallery is located ½ mile east of the intersection of Highways 14 and 16 East in Ucross.
