‘Met Opera Live’ season begins Sat. @ WYO Theater
Oct 8 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

SHERIDAN — The WYO Theater will present Wagner’s “Tristan and Isolde” as part of its The Metropolitan Opera: Live in High Definition series at 10 a.m. Saturday.

As part of its efforts to reinvigorate opera and reach out to a broader public, The Metropolitan Opera in New York launched the series of opera performances transmitted live to movie theaters and other venues around the world.

The three acts of “Tristan and Isolde” are originally set, respectively, aboard ship on the Irish Sea, in Cornwall (southwestern Britain), and in Brittany (northwestern France). Wagner’s version emphasizes several key themes associated with ancient Celtic culture: mysticism, knowledge of the magic arts, an evolved warrior code and a distinctly non-Christian vision of the possibilities of the afterlife.

Tickets are $21 for adults and $11 for students. They are available at the WYO Theater box office. For more information, call the box office at 672-9084.

CTG to host auditions for ‘Bakersfield Mist’ @ room 209 of the old Hallmark building
Oct 17 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan Civic Theatre Guild will host auditions for “Bakersfield Mist,” a dramatic comedy by Stephen Sachs, on Oct. 17-18 from 6-8 p.m. each night.

The auditions will take place in room 209 of the old Hallmark building on Main Street.

The play follows Maude, an unemployed bartender, living in a Bakersfield trailer park. She has bought a painting at a thrift store and despite almost trashing it, she’s now convinced it is a lost masterpiece by Jackson Pollock worth millions.

World class art expert Lionel Percy flies in from New York to authenticate the piece but has no idea what he is about to discover. His interplay with Maude is a classic culture clash and a mystery with comic relief.

The play is rated PG for language.

The performance and rehearsals will take place at the Carriage House Theater. Performance dates will be Jan. 20-22, 27-29 and Feb. 2-4.

The show will be directed by Gene Davis.

CVC to host workshop on dementia friendly community @ The Sheridan Senior Center
Nov 9 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The Center for a Vital Community at Sheridan College and Sheridan Senior Center will host a meeting and short work session for the five initiatives that came out of Creating a Dementia Friendly Community Study Circles last fall.  

The workshop will be held Wednesday from 3:30-5 p.m. in the Sheridan Senior Center dining room.

The five initiatives include:

• Dementia friends creating communities where people living with dementia feel accepted and understood. This involves training everyone from neighbors to waiters to clerks about dementia, how it affects people’s lives and how they can make a positive difference to people living with dementia in our county. 

• Community strategic planning for dementia friendly physical spaces encouraging meaningful activity and social interaction while reducing risks and providing quiet, safe spaces.

This also includes researching the inventory of facilities that care for dementia patients. 

• Building a health care continuum for dementia needs assuring integration of care across health and social services. This might encompass recruiting elder care professionals, providing ongoing education on eldercare and dementia for all health care professionals and promoting cognitive screenings, especially for early diagnosis.

• Support center(s) and navigators  where those living with dementia and their families can receive initial and ongoing support. It could either be a central place or several locations where trained volunteers can help guide those living with dementia and their caregivers to appropriate resources and navigate whatever processes are involved. 

• Caregiver support and respite  involving, including and caring for those living with dementia. That might look like support groups in outlying communities, short break programs and expanded senior companion programs.

Since the Senior Center was recently awarded a $1.1 million federal grant supporting the Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementia Initiative, the Study Circles committee members and anyone else who is interested, will be learning what the next steps are and how they can help.

Everyone is invited to attend, regardless if they have been involved in the past.

The Sheridan Senior Center is located at 211 Smith St.

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.
