Sheridan Stage is THE comprehensive source for
Sheridan-area performing arts events!

At the Sheridan Civic Theatre Guild, our mission is to produce and promote community-based performing arts. We envisioned a web-based resource that would provide the community with an up-to-date, comprehensive listing of all things performing arts. Sheridan Stage provides a portal for local artists to post information about upcoming performing arts events, including theater, music, dance, comedy, and improv productions.

Sheridan Stage is managed by the Sheridan Civic Theatre Guild, but populated by YOU!

Bakersfield Mist @ Carriage House Theater | Sheridan | Wyoming | United States

Bakersfield Mist: By Stephen Sachs (Comedy/Mystery)
Directed By Gene Davis

This play was inspired by true events that eventually was the subject of a documentary by 60 Minutes. Maude, an unemployed bartender living in a trailer park, buys a painting for 5$ at a thrift store. The local art teacher sees it and thinks it could be a lost abstract masterpiece by Jackson Pollock worth millions. After careful research, eventually the International Foundation for Art Research gets involved and sends out its expert Lionel Percy to authenticate the painting. Lionel and Maude tangle from the outset in this classic culture clash over who defines what art is and what determines its worth. The play stars CTG veterans Aaron Odom as Lionel and Erin Kranz as Maude.

Performance dates are Jan. 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, and 29 and Feb. 2, 3 and 4. Thurs to Saturday performances at 7:30 and Sunday matinees at 2:00. Tickets are available at Wyo Box office or WyoTheater.com or Carriage House one hour before the performance.

This play is rated MA for mature audiences due to adult language.

Mike Forbes, tuba @ Whitney Center for the Arts
Jan 27 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

An artist of widely diverse musical talents, Mike Forbes (b. 1973, currently living near Madison, WI) “…is an outstanding tubist with a solid, colorful tone, terrific technical skills, and dramatic flair” (American Record Guide). He can be heard on his 2 solo albums on Summit Records: Forbes Plays Koetsier (Summit Records) where he features all seven works for solo tuba by Dutch composer, Jan Koetsier, and his recently released Forbes Plays Forbes featuring his own compositions for tuba, He has recently been a featured tubist with the Guy’s All Star Shoe band on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keiller and also gave the first ever solo tuba recital on Wisconsin Public Radio’s popular broadcast, Live from the Chazen.

Staff Sergeant Forbes began his career as a tubist with the U.S. Army Band, “Pershing’s Own” and subsequently served on the music faculties at universities along the East Coast and in the Midwest. Recently, he has been in high demand in Iberia as the Guest Tuba Lecturer at the Superior Conservatories in Malaga (Spain), Porto (Portugal), at the international music festivals in Salceda (Spain) and Alcobaça (Portugal). Adding to his Spanish-speaking residencies, he lectured at the “Wind & Song” brass festival at the San Juan Music Conservatory in Puerto Rico last summer. In 2015-16 he will present clinics, masterclasses, and concerts internationally in Portugal (“Gravissimo” in Alcobaça) , Austria (Salzburg), and Italy (Bologna).

An extremely prolific chamber musician, Forbes has founded the Isthmus Brass (Wisconsin’s leading large brass ensemble with a newSummit Records release: “Isthmus Brass Christmas“) and the Isthmus Brass Quintet (a hip ensemble of trumpets, horn, trombone, tuba and percussion). He has also co-founded The Wild Trio with hornist Charles Tibbetts and is a co-founder of the Sotto Voce Quartet, America’s premiere tuba/euphonium quartet. Sotto Voce enjoys an international touring schedule and has released a number of recordings also on Summit Records. Their latest CD, “Take This Hammer: Works Composed for Sotto Voce” feature two of Forbes’s original works for quartet: “Bridge: A Mini-Requiem for Countertenor and Tuba Quartet” and “Four Miniatures,” a work Forbes was commissioned to write for the International Tuba/Euphonium Conference Tuba Quartet Competition held in Budapest, Hungary in 2004. The other recordings also feature Forbes’s many compositions and arrangements for the quartet genre, many of which can be found in the Editions BIM catalog. A couple years ago, the quartet has performed special concerts at the Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic and the Texas Music Educators Convention. Last year, they performed at the BrassWind Festival in Norway in the fall.

In addition to the works for Sotto Voce, Forbes is a regularly commissioned composer currently serving as a low brass specialist forKendor Music and as a middle & high school band and orchestra composer for Carl Fischer and FJH Music publishing companies. He has recently been commissioned by WSMA to compose a new work for the High School State Honors Orchestra and the premiere of the work “Rolling Boil” can be seen here on PBS. Other recent commissions include the National Band Association of Wisconsin (to compose a new work for their 25th State Band Festival) and the University of Alabama to compose a work for their Wind Ensemble. The resulting works, (Rolling Boil, Glacier Canyon, and Deja Vu) will receive their premieres in the 2015-16 calendar year. Forbes has repeatedly won the Dallas Wind Symphony Fanfare Composition Competition and his works have received numerous awards and accolades by U.S. Army Band, Humboldt Brass Festival, and the International Tuba-Euphonium Association. His entire catalogue of compositions and arrangements are featured on his publishing website: eBrassMusic.com

As the founder of the Isthmus Brass and Sotto Voce, Forbes regularly performs and records throughout the Midwest on both the tuba and the bass trombone. He is the Principal Tubist with the La Crosse and Manitowoc Symphonies and has recently performed with the Porto Symphony (Portugal), Madison Symphony, and Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra. He also has performed as principal tuba with the Milwaukee based Starry Nights Summer Festival Orchestra, as well as the Aspen, Chautauqua, and Hot Springs Music Festivalorchestras.

Dr. Forbes is currently the tuba/euphonium professor at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. He studied at the University of Maryland (DMA), the University of Wisconsin-Madison (MM), and during his junior year at Penn State (BM) he took an exchange to Manchester, England where he continued his studies the University of Manchester and the Royal Northern College of Music. His foremost teachers have included John Stevens, Toby Hanks, Gene Pokorny, Marty Erickson, and Mark Lusk.

The Humor of Patrick McManus @ WYO Theater
Jan 28 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

A FINE & PLEASANT MISERY; THE HUMOR OF PATRICK MCMANUS STARRING TIM BEHRENS

January 28, 2017, 7:30pm

Much as Hal Holbrook presents Mark Twain’s world, Tim Behrens brings to life more than 40 zany denizens of Blight, Idaho, the fictional home town of nationally renowned humor writer Patrick F. McManus. McManus, whose 24 books have sold more than 5 million copies, and Behrens, with more than 1600 performances in 20 years, have created a history of hilarity. A Seattle Times critic noted: “the audience, already moved to tears of laughter, were reduced to banging their heads on their knees in a rictus of paralyzed delight.”
