Proud Mary Theatre Company’s live production of The Laramie Project, the award-winning play by Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project, will be performed Outdoors at the USC Upstate Amphitheatre July 15-24, Thursdays-Saturdays @ 7 p.m.
This outdoor theatre production about the murder of gay college student Matthew Shepard in 1998 in Laramie, Wyoming, is directed by Ben Dawkins and will be performed at the USC Upstate 12-acre Susan Jacobs Arboretum which has a 300-seat amphitheater, a meandering creek lined with stones and boulders, 12 separate garden areas/plant collections of foliage indigenous to the area, and rows of Nuttall Oak trees.
Quinn Davis, part of our 2020 virtual cast, is appearing in her sixth Proud Mary production and can usually be found in local Shakespeare performances, including 2019’s Romeo and Juliet and The Tempest (Upstate Shakespeare Festival), and has been acting in the area since 1997 in various productions. She also enjoys the odd film role now and again. When not acting, she spends her time reading and painting.
The Laramie Project features Quinn Davis, Doug Egge, Samantha Jemmott, Laura Bunn, Audrey Waldrop, Robyn Cheezum, Schuyler Carson-Jackson, Najee Joyner, Jalen Gray, and Robert Penninger. USC Upstate alum Joanie Blackwell is stage manager.
This production is made possible by the generosity of USC Upstate, USC Upstate Theatre, Landrum Eclectics, the LGBT Fund of Spartanburg.
PARKING: Proud Mary Theatre will have plenty of directional signs but the Parking Lot is on the back side of the campus on Gramling Drive Near North Campus Boulevard.
