SHERIDAN — The WYO Performing Arts and Education Center will host its gala featuring a performance of “The Addams Family, A New Musical!” Oct. 20.

Proceeds from the event support the WYO’s operating expenses for the 2018-2019 season. The opening night gala party will begin at 5:30 p.m. with food and drink at Frackelton’s Fine Food & Spirits. Then, the theater will host silent and live auctions and the performance.

If you can’t make the gala, encore performances will be offered Oct. 25-27 at 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 28 at 2 p.m. 

In “The Addams Family,” Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family — a man her parents have never met. Everything will change for the Addams family on the night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents. 

Tickets for the gala cost $110 per person. Tickets for encore performances cost $27 for adults, $24 for seniors and military and $20 for students. All tickets are available through the WYO box office, online at or by phone at (307) 672-9084.

The WYO is located at 42 N. Main St.
