WYO Theater to host ‘Artrageous’ show @ WYO Theater
Feb 18 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

SHERIDAN — While a high-energy, fast-paced, color-enhanced performance sounds like something geared toward children, both WYO Theater executive director Erin Butler and the show’s performers are quick to correct that misconception.

Artrageous — an interactive art and music experience — includes music, dancing and a form of quick-drawing.

“It’s geared toward kids in the sense that we want to expose students and children to multiple forms of art happening at the same time and (show them) that art doesn’t have to be one thing or the other,” Butler said. “But the show really appeals to a wider audience.”

Butler explained that the music included in the shows will be familiar to adults and noted that the art is very professional.

“So kids will like it because it’s fun, loud and high-energy,” Butler said, “but adults will like it because of the artistry.”

John deWolf said Artrageous is comprised of a team of friends that have been performing together in one form or another since the 1980s. 

“One of the ways this all makes sense is that, for instance, we might do a song from the 1950s and combine that with a live action painting of an icon from the 1950s — singing, dancing and a 6-by-6 painting of Elvis appears in a matter of minutes,” deWolf said.

He said the show is “gently” engaging and the group works to ease folks into the interactive parts of the show. They do a meet and greet as attendees come into the lobby and engage the audience throughout the show in a safe, fun way. 

“They love the opportunity to hop up on stage with us,” deWolf said. 

Both Butler and deWolf said the show is different from what most people have seen.

“I’ve never seen anything like it — ever; it’s really unique,” Butler said.

deWolf said the group has performed in Wyoming in other forms, but this is the first time Artrageous will come to Sheridan County.

The show will take place at the WYO Theater at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 18. Tickets are $32 for adults, $29.50 for seniors and military, $26.50 for students. For more information about Artrageous, visit www.artrageousexperience.com. Tickets are available at the WYO Theater box office.

BIG HORN — Big Horn High School choir students will tell the stories of John the Baptist, Jesus and Judas when they present a production of “Godspell JR.” on March 28 at the school’s auditorium under the direction of music/drama director Dustin G. Olsen.

Conceived and originally directed by John Michael Tebelak, with music and new lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, “Godspell” is one of the biggest off-Broadway and Broadway successes of all time. The musical uses major episodes in the Bible — including the baptism of Jesus, the Last Supper, his arrest and crucifixion — to explore important ideas like compassion, love, forgiveness and sacrifice for the greater good.  

“There is a wonderful symmetry in this production,” Olsen said. “These students are working together as a team to present a musical, which at its core reminds us how our individual actions ‘day by day’ help us to build a beautiful community and world.

“We have chosen to bring the timeless musical ‘Godspell’ to today’s world,” he continued. “This production is set inside a present day classroom with Jesus being the teacher. As with the original ‘Godspell’ production, the audience is part of the cast in our production as well. Together we will celebrate the teachings and life of Jesus.”

The Big Horn High School choir will present the production March 28 at 7:30 p.m. in the Big Horn auditorium. Tickets are free, but donations will be accepted.

Big Horn High School students to perform ‘Godspell’ @ Big Horn High School
Mar 28 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

BIG HORN — Big Horn High School choir students will tell the stories of John the Baptist, Jesus and Judas when they present a production of “Godspell JR.” on March 28 at the school’s auditorium under the direction of music/drama director Dustin G. Olsen.

Conceived and originally directed by John Michael Tebelak, with music and new lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, “Godspell” is one of the biggest off-Broadway and Broadway successes of all time. The musical uses major episodes in the Bible — including the baptism of Jesus, the Last Supper, his arrest and crucifixion — to explore important ideas like compassion, love, forgiveness and sacrifice for the greater good.  

“There is a wonderful symmetry in this production,” Olsen said. “These students are working together as a team to present a musical, which at its core reminds us how our individual actions ‘day by day’ help us to build a beautiful community and world.

“We have chosen to bring the timeless musical ‘Godspell’ to today’s world,” he continued. “This production is set inside a present day classroom with Jesus being the teacher. As with the original ‘Godspell’ production, the audience is part of the cast in our production as well. Together we will celebrate the teachings and life of Jesus.”

The Big Horn High School choir will present the production March 28 at 7:30 p.m. in the Big Horn auditorium. Tickets are free, but donations will be accepted.

Big Horn High School is located at 333 Highway 335 in Big Horn.
