UCHS Presents The Laramie Project

Laramie Project poster "The Laramie Project" is a 2000 play by Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project about the reaction to the 1998 murder of gay University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming. The murder was denounced as a hate crime and brought attention to the lack of hate crime laws in various states, including Wyoming. (Warning subject matter may not be suitable for younger children.)

The play draws on hundreds of interviews conducted by the theatre company with inhabitants of the town, company members' own journal entries, and published news reports. It is divided into three acts, and 21 students will portray more than 60 characters.

UCHS Drama Club invites you to attend one or both of the 7 p.m. performances on Friday, Oct. 26 and Saturday, Oct. 27 on stage at University City High School, 7401 Balson Ave. (63130). Seating is extremely limited due to the intimate staging and set design. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students. There are only 70 seats available for each performance - so please purchase your tickets as soon as possible from Eventbrite. Any remaining tickets will be available on a first-come basis at the door - cash or a check. Doors open at 6:30 pm.
