SHERIDAN — Sheridan High School has qualified for the We the People state championship on Feb. 6 in Laramie following the district competition held in Casper. 

To prepare for the state competition, the Sheridan team has invited interested community members to mark their calendar and watch the state dress rehearsal from 5-8 p.m. Monday at the Inner Circle of the Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library. 

Eighteen teams competed at the district competition, and Sheridan will join teams from Cheyenne Central, Cheyenne East, Glenrock, Jackson and Laramie for the state competition. 

Students competing at the state championship will be asked two rounds of questions on their study of the U.S. Constitution. The questions include the philosophies underpinning our Constitution, political views of the founders and more. The winner of this competition will represent the state of Wyoming at the We the People national finals in Washington, D.C., on April 21-24. 

Sheridan High School has represented the state four times at the national finals and has won back-to-back-to-back championships heading into this year’s competition.

WYO Theater to host children’s show Sunday @ WYO Theater
Feb 12 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The WYO Theater will host children’s show “Beethoven’s Wig Live” at 4 p.m. Feb. 12.

Years ago, Richard Perlmutter toyed with the idea of writing lyrics to masterpieces of classical music. While humming Beethoven’s 5th Symphony, the words “Beethoven’s Wig is very big” popped into his head. With that spark of inspiration, “Beethoven’s Wig” was born. 

Music educators have adopted Beethoven’s Wig’s music as an effective teaching tool,  two illustrated piano/vocal songbooks have been released with collections of Beethoven’s Wig lyrics and music. 

The show is aimed at students in kindergarten through fourth grades.

The cost to attend is $17 for adults, $12.50 for seniors and military members and $10 for students.

The WYO Theater is located at 42 N. Main St.

SC to host father, daughter art exhibit, reception @ Whitney Center for the Arts at Sheridan College
Feb 16 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

SHERIDAN — Internationally-renowned artist Theodore Waddell, who has gifted the college his entire print collection, printing press and materials to Sheridan College, will give a presentation with his daughter, local artist Arin Waddell, on Feb. 16 from 5-7 p.m.  

Theodore Waddell most often paints freely-rendered range animals roaming the vast plains of eastern Montana. He is known for expressionist animal and landscape painting and sculpture. Waddell was born in Laurel, Montana, and studied at the Brooklyn Museum Art School; Eastern Montana College; and Wayne State University, Detroit (MFA, 1968). He taught at the University of Montana from 1968 to 1976 and has since been a full-time artist and rancher.  He has had more than 90 one-man exhibitions, including a major survey at the Eiteljorg Museum, Indianapolis. Waddell’s work has been singled out in reviews in the Washington Post and The New York Times, and was the subject of a Newsweek article. 

The Waddells will work with Sheridan area high school students on Feb. 15 and Sheridan College students on Feb. 16. 

On Feb. 16, from 5-7 p.m., the Whitney Center for the Arts will host an opening artist reception for Theodore Waddell and Arin Waddell. Both of their works will be on display in their latest exhibition: Waddell + Waddell. This reception is free and open to the public. The public is welcome to attend, view the works and meet the artists. 

Waddell + Waddell is on display through March 10.

The Whitney Center for the Arts at Sheridan College is located at 3059 Coffeen Ave.

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.
