SHERIDAN — The WYO Performing Arts and Education Center will offer a screening of “Dirtbag: The Legend of Fred Beckey” June 19 at 7 p.m.

Hailed as one of the most influential climbers of all time, Beckey is the original American “Dirtbag” — one who abandons societal norms and material comforts in pursuit of a nomadic mountaineering lifestyle.

Beckey’s legacy includes 13 essential books that act as blueprints for new generations. He defiantly continued climbing until he died in October 2017 at age 94.

Tickets for the show are $12 for adults, $10 for students and $8 for children 8 and younger. Tickets are available through the WYO box office at 42 N. Main St., online at wyotheater.com or by phone at (307) 672-9084.
