Proud Mary Theatre Company continues to push the boundaries of theatre during the Covid-19 crisis 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 establishing hate crime legislation in the gay rights movement.
After a 3 year stint of traveling and performing out of town, Chase is back and couldn’t be more excited about this show and the unique/new way of presenting a story that matters. A local boy, Chase is a graduate of Wofford College with degrees in both Chemistry and Chinese. He has spent much of the last 2 years performing on ships and recently finished a run of Footloose the Musical on the Norwegian Joy. Best known in the Upstate for his portrayal of Bert in Mary Poppins (SLT) and The Beast in Beauty and the Beast (SCCT), he is excited to be making his Proud Mary Theatre debut and could not be happier to be a part of this cast and creative team.
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.
