Nov 19 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan College Theater Department will present “Boeing-Boeing” inside the Mars Theater, located downtown at the historic WYO Theater, Nov. 19-21.

The all-student cast includes Sheridan College theater students Spencer Walters of Buffalo, Joy Gilbert of Buffalo, Ashley Gilmor of Cheyenne, Jake Babbe of Rapid City, South Dakota, Jessica Winner of Big Horn, Kali Smith of Worland and Dax Cooper of Rawlins.
