The Laramie Project Interviews

The Williston Theatre’s spring production this year is The Laramie Project, a play by Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project that was based on a small town’s reaction to the 1998 murder of Matthew Shephard, a University of Wyoming student.  During a recent break between rehearsals, Emily Ditkovski, the director of the Williston production, and Persis Ticknor-Swanson ’14, a cast member, sat down to talk about preparing for the play, audience empowerment, and bullying.

The Williston Theater’s production of The Laramie Project opens on April 25 at 7:00 p.m.   Performances continue on April 27 and May 2-4 at 7:00 p.m. and April 26 at 7:30 p.m.  Click here to purchase tickets online.
