About the play: Based on the hate crime that attracted vast attention worldwide, bringing sexual discrimination and violence to the forefront of public discourse, THE LARAMIE PROJECT is a breathtaking collage of stories and interviews that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion to which we are capable.
Roles are open to performers over 18 of all races, gender identities, sexual orientations, body types, ages, and abilities. Due to the nature of this play, every performer will play a number of characters of varying ages, genders and backstories.
*While tracks in this show contain characters who live on the gender binary we encourage actors who are called back to submit and vocalize the tracks they feel most comfortable playing. Please note where we outline a track for a woman or a man, this includes transgender woman or man.
All actors for this project must be either local, or able to work as a local.
