Description: The annual Sheep Dip Show is an annual Roast of the Town that lampoons those in polictics and business who have transgressed in the past year with cheap and superficial acts. The slogan for this year’s show is, “50 Years of Parody for Charity”. The name Sheep Dip is drawn from Nevada’s early heritage of sheep herding in the Sierra Nevada. Sheep Dip is a cleansing element in which sheep are literally dipped. Today we dip our newsmakers in the satirical vat of Sheep Dip to cleanse them of their past deeds…so that they may go right back and be foolish again! This annual fundraiser show, dedicated to exposing the follies and foibles of the Truckee Meadows in an evening of skits, songs and dance, is performed by area locals (your neighbors) along with members of the media and even a few of our famous (and infamous) politicians. Together efforts go to raise funds that support charitable activities in the RENO/SPARKS and Greater Northern Nevada Area. Sheep Dip, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. Proceeds from Sheep Dip 50 will go to benefit; The Children’s Cabinet, For Kids Foundation, and Evelyn Mount’s Community Outreach.
