#wykidsaregood & events coming up!



As we prepare to launch our new Wy Woman & Family Magazine website & first online magazine, we want to hear from you! We’re looking for stories of Wyoming kids (of any age!) doing good things for others!

Helping someone in need … volunteering to help others … giving comfort to a person in need … being nice to someone … big or small, we want to hear it all!

No prizes, no gimmicks, no giveaways — just a chance to applaud Wyoming kids for being amazing.

We’re going to blog & share these stories as they come in, so don’t wait! Each story will include the child’s first name and town where they live. Pictures are welcome, but not required. Please include a statement on your willingness to publish your child’s first name, Wyoming home town and photo (if included/desired) on our blog.

Email to editor@wyolifestyle.com – no deadlines, we’ll keep them going as they come in!

Search the hashtag #wykidsaregood to find our stories that we share …

SHERIDAN:  WYO Theater Gala presents “Anything Goes”, October 20

From Sheridan Chamber of Commerce:  The WYO Theater’s Annual Fundraising Gala features the musical “Anything Goes”, winner of three 2011 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical. Cole Porter’s classic stars your favorite local talent in an unforgettably fun and willfully silly musical. As the SS American heads out to sea, two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love … proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise, and some good old-fashioned blackmail. Peppering this hilariously bumpy ride are some of the musical theatre’s most memorable standards, including “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “It’s Delovely,” and of course “Anything Goes.” The October 20th performance is the big gala event, with hors d’oeurves and drinks preceding the performance. Doors open at 6:00 pm, curtain at 7:30 pm. Tickets for the gala evening are $100 per person. For more information and to purchase tickets (when available), contact the WYO Theater box office at (307) 672-9084 or online at www.wyotheater.com. Encore performance will be October 25-28.
