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.

AARP meeting to focus on age-friendly communities @ Heritage Towers
Apr 14 @ 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm

SHERIDAN — On Friday, the AARP Chapter of Sheridan will host a session on creating livable and age-friendly communities.

David Hough, a member of the AARP-Wyoming Executive Council, will lead a discussion on the characteristics of a livable community and how a city or town can improve its appeal for individuals of all ages. With more than 30 years of experience in community and park planning, Hough has studied many aspects of community design and livability. He has been involved in the establishment of transit systems, trails, has prepared bicycle and pedestrian plans, and has designed neighborhood parks. He resides in Casper, where he served the city of Casper in the community development and public services departments for 18 years.

After finishing out his planning career as a private consultant, Hough retired and became involved in AARP.

He found the AARP initiatives on livable and age-friendly communities of particular interest and has built an understanding of these programs and how they would apply to Wyoming communities. He has assisted the city of Casper with the implementation of the recently completed Senior Services Study (an update of the 2008 Baby Boomer Study) and helped secure a commitment by the Casper City Council to be the first AARP designated Age Friendly Community in Wyoming.

Hough is now working with other Wyoming communities like Sheridan and Jackson on steps they can take to make their communities more livable not just for seniors but for residents and visitors of all ages.

Friday’s event will include a potluck dinner beginning at 5:30 p.m. A short business meeting will follow and Hough’s presentation will begin at 6 p.m.

The event will take place in the dining room at Heritage Towers, 428 N. Jefferson St. For more information, contact Wayne Schatz at 751-5047.

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.

AARP meeting to focus on age-friendly communities @ Heritage Towers
Apr 14 @ 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm

SHERIDAN — On Friday, the AARP Chapter of Sheridan will host a session on creating livable and age-friendly communities.

David Hough, a member of the AARP-Wyoming Executive Council, will lead a discussion on the characteristics of a livable community and how a city or town can improve its appeal for individuals of all ages. With more than 30 years of experience in community and park planning, Hough has studied many aspects of community design and livability. He has been involved in the establishment of transit systems, trails, has prepared bicycle and pedestrian plans, and has designed neighborhood parks. He resides in Casper, where he served the city of Casper in the community development and public services departments for 18 years.

After finishing out his planning career as a private consultant, Hough retired and became involved in AARP.

He found the AARP initiatives on livable and age-friendly communities of particular interest and has built an understanding of these programs and how they would apply to Wyoming communities. He has assisted the city of Casper with the implementation of the recently completed Senior Services Study (an update of the 2008 Baby Boomer Study) and helped secure a commitment by the Casper City Council to be the first AARP designated Age Friendly Community in Wyoming.

Hough is now working with other Wyoming communities like Sheridan and Jackson on steps they can take to make their communities more livable not just for seniors but for residents and visitors of all ages.

Friday’s event will include a potluck dinner beginning at 5:30 p.m. A short business meeting will follow and Hough’s presentation will begin at 6 p.m.

The event will take place in the dining room at Heritage Towers, 428 N. Jefferson St. For more information, contact Wayne Schatz at 751-5047.
