WYO Theater to present ‘These Shining Lives’ @ WYO Theater
Nov 17 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

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.
