Auditions: The Laramie Project

Flowertown Underground of Summerville will host auditions July 30 and 31 at 7 p.m. for The Laramie Project. Rehearsals take place in the lobby of Flowertown Players. Callbacks will be August 2. Based on the true and horrendous murder of gay student Matthew Shepard in Laramie, WY, this show draws from hundreds of interviews conducted by the members of Tectonic Theatre Project in reaction to the 1998 hate crime. Short scenes bring together more than 60 characters to portray the seemingly average town seeded with unmeasurable hatred and shocking heights of compassion. The show is scheduled for September 14-16.
