Auditions for "The Laramie Project"
STORY: In October 1998, a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severely beaten, and left tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. His bloody, bruised, and battered body was not discovered until the next day, and he died several days later in an area hospital. His name was Matthew Shepard, and he was the victim of this assault because he was gay. Moises Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie over the course of a year and a half, in the aftermath of the beating and during the trial of the two young men accused of killing Shepard. They conducted more than 200 interviews with the people of the town. The Laramie Project is a breathtaking collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.
Auditions held on a first-come, first-served basis. Parts available for 4-6 M, 4- 6 F (doubling, flexible casting.)
Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Auditioners are encouraged to prepare a one-minute modern, dramatic monologue from any published play. Monologues should best portray actor's strengths and must be memorized. It is requested that auditioners bring an 8x10 color photo-headshot and resume of acting experience, if available, but this is not required.
