LTCC to host auditions for ‘The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later’

The Lake Tahoe Community College Theatre Arts Department will hold auditions for its fall theatre production of “The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later” on Sept. 24 at 7 p.m. in the Duke Theatre.

The production commemorates the 15th anniversary of Matthew Shepard’s death. Shepard was a gay University of Wyoming student who was tortured and left for dead while tied to a fence in Laramie, Wyo., in October 1998. Several events will be presented at the college in association with the production, including a screening of the brand new documentary film, “Matthew Shepard is a Friend of Mine.” Shepard became an important icon in the fight for gay rights – a fight that has led to remarkable change in recent months, a press release stated.

“The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later” will explore how the event that became international news still haunts and shapes Laramie today. Five men and five women will be cast to play multiple characters ranging in age from 18-65. Scripts of the play are available in the LTCC Library for 48-hour checkouts.

Rehearsals for the production will be held Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings near the start; the number of rehearsals will increase as performance time nears. Performances will be held Nov. 15, 16, 21, 22 and 23; Sunday matinees will be held Nov. 17 and 24.
