OffBook Productions announces auditions for The Laramie Project



WHEN: July 22, 7:0 PM; July 23, 9:30 PM
First Reformed Church, 71 Main St, Little Falls, NJ

Announcing auditions for our upcoming fall show, THE LARAMIE PROJECT, directed by Laura Iacometta and Jess Hope Katz. 

Based on history, the play centers on the community of Laramie, Wyoming in the aftermath of the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard, a gay University of Wyoming student. The Tectonic Theater Project conducted several interviews with members of the local public as well as their own diary entries, news reports, and firsthand accounts. 

In the theater world, The Laramie Project is a piece that aims to inform and educate audiences about queer history as well as combat anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and behaviors. A film based on the play, also written and directed by Moises Kaufman, was released in 2002 starring Christina Ricci.

Sides will be provided.
