Sheridan's Civic Theater Guild presents "Standing By"

*h/t Center for a Vital Community; photo* (Sheridan, Wyo.) — Sheridan’s Civic Theater Guild will present “Standing By” — a romantic dramady by Norman Barasch, at the Carriage House Theater behind Kendrick Mansion this weekend. The first showing is Thursday, and the performances continue at 7 p.m. through Saturday with a matinee performance at 2 p.m. Sunday. “Standing By” tells the tale of Jeffery, a television writer, who is delighted to be seated next to Ellen, an attractive flutist, on a flight from Los Angeles to New York, though she rebuffs his attempts to get acquainted. Upon arrival, Ellen discovers it is impossible to get a hotel room and is finally cajoled into accompanying Jeffery to a borrowed apartment. An intense four-day affair ensues, but the idyll is cut short when Ellen learns her leukemia is no longer in remission and she must return to Houston for treatments. Against her wishes, Jeffery accompanies her. In the days that follow, they learn the meaning of love and courage. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for seniors/military/students. Tickets are available at the WYO Theater box office, by calling (307) 672-9084, online at under Civic Theatre Guild tickets, or, if still available, one hour before each performance at the Carriage House Theater. #dally
