‘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.

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.

Explore history of Clean Air Act at SC Wednesday @ Sheridan College
Dec 7 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan College Museum of Discovery will host a lecture on “Clean Air — Then and Now: The Role of Catalysts and Computers” on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public.

The lecture will take a retrospective look at the reasons for the enactment of the 1970 Clean Air Act, which led to the use of catalytic converters as standard equipment on all American cars produced since 1974.

Today, exhaust emissions from our cars are 98 percent lower than they were in the early 1970s. Which would not have been possible without the co-development of catalyst and computer science. The lecture will include examples of how the automotive industry could match scientific advances in chemistry and electronics to accomplish what was thought impossible 40 years ago. Robert McDowell will present the lecture.

McDowell graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science degree from Villanova University while working in the research and development group of Johnson Matthey, the largest automotive catalyst company. He was part of the team that brought the first commercial three-way catalyst from concept into production and has manufactured emission control catalyst on four continents. He currently advises a diverse set of clients working in the R&D and prototyping areas, including lithium ion batteries, biofuels, precious metal recycling and emission control catalysts.
