WYO Theater to present ‘These Shining Lives’ @ WYO Theater

SHERIDAN — The theater production “These Shining Lives” by Sheridan College will show at the WYO Theater on Nov. 17-19 at 7:30 p.m. and another showing on Nov. 19 at 2 p.m.

The 1920’s and 30s…what a glamorous time. Jazz! Prohibition! Baseball! Gangsters! Women have the vote and it is a brave, new, modern world. But, as the story of the young women in “These Shining Lives” demonstrates, modernity has its risks.

This play chronicles the strength and determination of women workers considered expendable in their day, exploring their true story and its continued resonance. Due to exposure to radium at the watch factory where they work, Catherine and her friends are dying. It’s true, but theirs is a story of survival in its most transcendent sense, as they refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits — or endanger the lives of those who come after them.

Tickets for the performance cost $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and military and $5 for students.

Civic Theatre Guild to present ‘Bakersfield Mist’ @ Carriage House Theater
Jan 20 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan Civic Theatre Guild will present the third show of its season beginning Jan. 20 at the Carriage House Theater.

“Bakersfield Mist” is a comedy written by Stephen Sachs and directed by Gene Davis.

The play was inspired by a true story that eventually was the subject of a documentary by 60 Minutes. Maude, an unemployed bartender living in a trailer park, buys a painting for $5 at a thrift store. The local art teacher sees it and thinks it could be a lost abstract masterpiece by Jackson Pollock worth millions. After careful research, eventually the International Foundation for Art Research gets involved and sends out its expert Lionel Percy to authenticate the painting. 

The result is a classic culture clash over who defines what art is and what determines its worth. 

The play stars CTG veterans Aaron Odom as Lionel and Erin Kranz as Maude.

Performance dates are Jan. 20-22, Jan. 27-29 and Feb. 2-4. Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinées will begin at 2 p.m. 

 Tickets are available at WYO Theater box office, wyotheater.com or at the Carriage House Theater one hour before the performance. Tickets cost $15 per adult and $12 per senior, military member or student.

This play is rated MA for mature audiences due to adult language.

The Carriage House Theater is located at 419 Delphi Ave.

The 1920’s and 30s…what a glamorous time. Jazz! Prohibition! Baseball! Gangsters! Women have the vote and it is a brave, new, modern world. But, as the story of the young women in “These Shining Lives” demonstrates, modernity has its risks.

This play chronicles the strength and determination of women workers considered expendable in their day, exploring their true story and its continued resonance. Due to exposure to radium at the watch factory where they work, Catherine and her friends are dying. It’s true, but theirs is a story of survival in its most transcendent sense, as they refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits — or endanger the lives of those who come after them.

Tickets for the performance cost $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and military and $5 for students.

Civic Theatre Guild to present ‘Bakersfield Mist’ @ Carriage House Theater
Jan 20 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan Civic Theatre Guild will present the third show of its season beginning Jan. 20 at the Carriage House Theater.

“Bakersfield Mist” is a comedy written by Stephen Sachs and directed by Gene Davis.

The play was inspired by a true story that eventually was the subject of a documentary by 60 Minutes. Maude, an unemployed bartender living in a trailer park, buys a painting for $5 at a thrift store. The local art teacher sees it and thinks it could be a lost abstract masterpiece by Jackson Pollock worth millions. After careful research, eventually the International Foundation for Art Research gets involved and sends out its expert Lionel Percy to authenticate the painting. 

The result is a classic culture clash over who defines what art is and what determines its worth. 

The play stars CTG veterans Aaron Odom as Lionel and Erin Kranz as Maude.

Performance dates are Jan. 20-22, Jan. 27-29 and Feb. 2-4. Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinées will begin at 2 p.m. 

 Tickets are available at WYO Theater box office, wyotheater.com or at the Carriage House Theater one hour before the performance. Tickets cost $15 per adult and $12 per senior, military member or student.

This play is rated MA for mature audiences due to adult language.

The Carriage House Theater is located at 419 Delphi Ave.
