WEATHER FROM OUR SPONSORS
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.

SHERIDAN — The WYO Theater will host a production of “A Year with Frog and Toad” on Sunday at 5 p.m.
Based on Arnold Lobel’s well-loved books, the jazzy, upbeat score bubbles with melody. Part vaudeville and part make-believe, “A Year with Frog and Toad” tells the story of a friendship that endures.
This whimsical show follows two great friends — the cheerful, popular Frog, and the rather grumpy Toad — through four fun-filled seasons.
Tickets cost $17 for adults, $10 for students and $12.50 for seniors and military members. Tickets can be purchased online at wyotheater.com, at the theater’s box office or by phone at 672-9084.

“The idea of Mayfest/Denim and Diamonds is to bring the community together as a whole to support the foundation of our community’s future leaders and professionals,” said Jessica Wood, PTO president for HNCS. “Mayfest also brings together teachers, administration, parents and other alumni to really spotlight the family made by HNCS students.”
Dinner will feature an Italian buffet and a full bar, a wine pull and unique and exciting silent auction items, including baskets and works of art put together by HNCS students and teachers. The night will also feature a live auction with Roger St. Clair as auctioneer, and live music by the Boot Hill Band.
HNCS Athletics Director Shawn Lewallen said Mayfest is a time for the people throughout the community to get together, have fun and support the school.
“These events give everyone — parents and teachers — a chance to let loose a little,” Lewallen said.
Tickets are $50 per person or $80 per couple.
The event is for patrons 21 and older, and is open to the public. Participants can play professional casino-style games for the chance to win prizes.
