The Sheridan Arts Foundation Young People’s Theater presents its annual high school musical offering with “The Drowsy Chaperone” on Jan. 30-31 and Feb. 2 at the historic Sheridan Opera House. “The Drowsy Chaperone” is a musical for people who love musicals (and even for those who don't)! Set partially in the modern day, the play opens with "Man in a Chair" a theatre geek who is obsessed with an old 1920s musical, 'The Drowsy Chaperone". He plays the audience a scratchy old record of the show, and the story takes off from there. (Please note: Balcony seats in rows P & O are flip down with a great view of the stage, but limited leg room)
The Sheridan Arts Foundation proudly presents Brett Dennen: Solo Acoustic at the Sheridan Opera House on Feb. 5, 2015. He'll be joined by Willy Tea Taylor as opening support.

Dennen's debut release in 2006 drew comparisons to such troubadours as Paul Simon and Tom Petty and Dennen has been wowing audiences with his songwriting and on-stage charisma ever since. Tickets are $30 and $35 reserved seats. (Please note: Balcony seats in rows P & O are flip down with a great view of the stage, but limited leg room)
