I recently came across Dr. Sheridan's obituary on the Facebook page of the BBHS Class of 1973. A flood of happy memories of being on stage crew for four years swept over me.  Hours after the curtain lowered on the final night of Hello Dolly at the Seattle Opera House, we stage crew members took a break cleaning up and grabbed music stands for umbrellas. Producing our own rendition of "Put on Your Sunday Clothes," we sang and danced our hearts out.   As we took our bows to the empty theater, we heard someone clapping.  Maury Sheridan had been hiding in the wings enjoying our performance.  I can still feel the delight and appreciation emanating from that good man 50 years later.  Mary Sullivan DeLateur

Mr. Sheridan was extremely influential in my life.  I worked on Stage Crew all four years (painting backdrops) under his exemplary leadership. He was such an inspiration and I so admired him. He was "that teacher" that made a difference for me. He encouraged me and expressed he saw leadership potential in me. He was the very first peron who mentioned my name and "leader" in the same sentence!  What a life changing moment, when someone you admire, voices confidence in you.

I have many exquisite memories of participation in the musicals: some of the best times of my high school years.
