DRAG A CAPPELLA GROUP AT CWC FEB. 21

DRAG A CAPPELLA GROUP AT CWC FEB. 21

Kinsey Sicks, a “drag a cappella beautyshop quartet” performs at Central Wyoming College’s Little Theatre at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 21.

The unique group performs “Electile Dysfunction: The Kinsey Sicks for President” after it premiered Feb. 4 at a Washington, D.C. theater that commissioned the work. The performance, intended for mature audiences, is free and open to the public.
 
Sponsored by CWC student organizations and the Diversity Committee, the Kinsey Sicks premiere of the show was the launch of their campaign to become the first “Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet to win the Republican nomination for President.” The group is performing in Tampa during the Republican Convention.
 
The act was hatched in 1993 when the four dressed as the Andrew Sisters at a Bette Midler concert. A promoter watched as the quartet hammed it up and asked them to perform in four-part harmony. The group has performed all over the country, off Broadway and in Las Vegas. They have recorded six CDs and have been profiled on  NBC’s 20/20 and the CBS Early Show.

Riverton, Wyo.— Metallica’s foundation, All Within My Hands, continues its multimilliondollar investment in critical workforce programs at community colleges nationwide. Among the schools, Central Wyoming College was selected from a competitive pool of applicants to receive $100,000 to transform the futures of students in the community.

“Central Wyoming College is excited to be a part of something that is elevating the importance of career paths where people can be really successful,” says President Brad Tyndall. “Trades, like our auto program, are so desperately needed by our communities right now. We’re incredibly thankful for Metallica’s generosity and All Within My Hands’ support.”

“Metallica’s mission to bring ‘dignity to the trades’ is aligned with Central Wyoming College’s purpose of providing high quality education in all of our trades programs,” says Lynne McAuliffe, CWC Dean of Business, Technical, Health and Safety. “We selected the Automotive Technology program to be the focus of this initiative in order to bring additional resources and attention to the demanding profession of automotive technicians.”
