Synopsis – The Laramie Project comprises of monologues and dialogue based on hundreds of interviews, news reports and court transcripts taken from the people of Laramie after the brutal death of Matthew Shepard. Matthew was a 21 year old University of Wyoming student who was kidnapped in 1998, severely beaten, tortured and tied to a fence to die – all because he was gay. His battered body was found the next day and he died in hospital shortly afterwards.
The Laramie Project is both an uplifting illustration of the human mind and spirit, and a tragic outline of the ways in which ignorance can often blind us.

Other information – Auditions are by appointment only. You will be required to prepare a monologue from any source (does not need to be memorised) and a cold read from the script. Please also bring along a recent photo.
American accents required.

Please arrive to your audition time 10 minutes early to read over audition pieces.

Rehearsals will be Sunday afternoons/early evening and Wednesday evenings. Although you will not be required at every single rehearsal, due to the ensemble nature of the piece you must be available for the whole rehearsal period, particularly Sundays.  You must also be available the full tech week (8 – 12 October) and production dates (weekends of 13 – 28 October).
