THE LARAMIE PROJECT
April 21 - April 24$10
CSI Theater Department presents – THE LARAMIE PROJECT
April 21 – 24 at 7:30 p.m. in the CSI Fine Arts Theater or Livestreamed
In October 1998, Matthew Shepard, age 21, was brutally beaten and left to die on the plains outside Laramie, Wyoming. Because he was gay.
Over the next year, Moisés Kaufman and a team of writers and actors from Tectonic took six trips to Laramie, where they interviewed citizens of the town – some unconnected with the tragedy, and some intimately involved. Using Moment Work, the company created The Laramie Project, a stunning theatrical examination of the immediate reactions of Matt Shepard’s community to the murder and to the underlying bigotry and hatred that enabled it. The Laramie Project has since been seen by over 30 million people around the world.
The show will be performed in collaboration with the Voices Against Violence organization–Rebel Arts studios will be featuring a pop-up art gallery in the Fine Arts Foyer featuring art created by survivors of violence.
Patrons will be able to view the art and attend the show. In person tickets are $10/adults or $5/students or seniors. Tickets for CSI students are free. All in person patrons require social distancing and face covering. Streaming ticket information TBA
