"The Laramie Project" Takes Center Stage in Less Than Two Weeks

Members of the cast and crew are busy rehearsing for this year’s Upper School fall play, The Laramie Project, which takes center stage in Founders Hall in less than two weeks. The play will be staged from Wednesday, November 6 through Saturday, November 9 in the Theater at Founders Hall and will be directed by Broadway actor and director, and MBS Artist-in-Residence, Nick Corley.

In November 1998, 10 New Yorkers traveled to Laramie, Wyoming, to explore a crime and a town. The result was this play, The Laramie Project, a work of hope, hate, fear and courage: a true American story. Time Magazine called the play “a pioneering work and a powerful stage event,” while New York Magazine hailed it as “nothing short of stunning. Not to be missed.”

The talented cast will include (in alphabetical order):

Kaitlin Blount
Ava Bourneuf
Anika Buch
Sal D’Agostino
Mia Gorczynski
Camryn Hartkern
Sam Kasmin
David Liu
Matt Lohmann
Whitney McDonnell
Bella Porraro
Will Srere
Laila Stipanov
Tate van der Poel
Cooper Weil

The show will be performed on Wednesday, November 6, Friday, November 8, and Saturday, November 9 at 7:30 p.m.  There will also be a 3:30 p.m. matinee on Thursday, November 7.

MBS students and faculty/staff are free.  All other tickets are $5.  Tickets are available from the MBS Performing Arts Department or at the door.
