“The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later” is an epilogue to the original play, by Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project. It tells the story of the kidnapping and brutal murder of Matthew Shepard, a 21-year-old, gay, University of Wyoming student.
In this show, the town of Laramie, Wyoming, is revisited a decade after the tragedy, finding a community grappling with its legacy and its place in history. The two plays together comprise an epic and deeply moving theatrical cycle that explores the life of an American town over the course of a decade.
Admission is free and the public is welcome.

Auditions for ‘Play On’ at CCC
VINELAND – Cumberland County College’s Department of Theatre will present “Play On!” by Rick Abbott from April 11 to 14. Open auditions will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Jan. 23 in the Luciano Theatre of the Frank Guaracini Jr. Fine and Performing Arts Center at the college at 3322 College Drive.
Director Deborah Bradshaw seeks a cast that includes a total of seven women and three men, ages 17 to 60. Some roles allow for gender reassignment, per the playwright, and may be altered during the auditions.
No monologue is required. Actors should be prepared to read from the script and other materials. The play takes place in England, so those auditioning should be prepared with a British accent for the characters in “Murder Most Foul,” the play within the play.
When the Dunbar Drama Society is given the opportunity to put their theater back in the black with a royalty free show, they jump at the chance. Little did they know, a maddening interference from the authoress would spin them into a tale of “anything that can go wrong will go wrong.” Between a disastrous dress rehearsal and a curtain speech on the state of modern theater, this “play inside a play” treats audiences to a madcap climax to a thoroughly hilarious romp. Even the sound effects reap their share of laughter.
Rehearsals begin on Jan. 28.
