Performed by students in the North Shore community, The Laramie Project tells the true story of one of the most controversial crimes of the last 50 years, told through the actual words of the people who knew the perpetrators and the victim of the horrific 1998 attack that took place in Laramie, Wyoming, in which two young men tied another young man to a fence and beat him to death.
The school challenges residents with this bold, thought-provoking play: “Come and see high school theater like you’ve never seen. Raw. Riveting. Real.”
Due to adult language and content, viewer discretion is advised.
The Laramie Project will be performed at North Shore High School Theater on Friday, Nov. 20, at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 21, at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Director Michael Kleba said, “This non-fiction play, literally ‘ripped from the headlines,’ will thrill and challenge audiences. With a cast of only 16 actors on a custom-built stage to bring the actors closer to the audience, this drama comes alive and gets inside your head.”
Admission for The Laramie Project is $10 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens. Tickets will be sold at the door.
