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.
Dave LaPage is thrilled to be working with Proud Mary Theatre Company again! He previously worked with Proud Mary on their inaugural production, the award-winning one-person show I Am My Own Wife. Other favorite past credits include: Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady (Glow Lyric Theatre), Black Stache in Peter and the Starcatcher (Spartanburg Little Theatre), R.P. McMurphy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and Michael Novak in God of Carnage (both at Centre Stage South Carolina), and the Emcee in Cabaret (The Market Theatre Company).
Directed by Ben Dawkins, The Laramie Project features a Who’s Who? cast of 14 amazing Upstate actors in some 60 roles: Ryan Barry, Michele Colletti, Ava Davis, Jonathan Davis, Kelly Davis, Doug Egge, Samantha Eyler, Darryl Harmon, Jim Huber, Dave LaPage, Rebecca Schledwitz, Tyler Smith, Audrey Waldrop and Chase Wolfe. Ashley Zimmerman is stage manager.
