Proud Mary Theatre Company continues to push the boundaries of virtual theatre as we open our 4th season with the 20th anniversary production of The Laramie Project, the award-winning play by Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project.
This is a FULL PRODUCTION (not a ZOOM reading) and will be presented as a Virtual Multimedia Experience available for streaming Tuesday, October 6, 2020 on the 22nd anniversary of the attack of gay college student Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming, and ends on October 12, the day Shepard died and became a martyr for hate crime legislation and the gay rights movement in the United States.
Since relocating to the Upstate in 2016, Michele Colletti has been seen in Centre Stage productions of Mamma Mia, Good People and Sister Act, among others, she has performed in The Asheville Christmas Show and most recently found a niche’ in directing and producing virtual plays for Centre Stage, Southern Appalachian Repertory Theatre, Attic Salt Theatre, and most recently Proud Mary’s Production of The Pussy Grabber Plays. She is so honored to be part of The Laramie Project. By day Michele is an Adjunct Instructor at Greenville Technical College.
