The Laramie Project

- students take on play about tragic true story -

In 1998 a University of Wyoming student was robbed, kidnapped, beaten and murdered because he was gay. The Laramie Project tells the story of the community's reaction and struggles in the year following the brutal crime.

Each actor will play 7-10 different characters in this stark production that has no elaborate sets or costumes.

General admission is $10.00 / $5.00 for students and seniors.
