CANTERBURY HIGH SCHOOL PRESENTS: “THE LARAMIE PROJECT”

Each year Canterbury High School’s grade 12 drama students put on a production as a culminating performance of everything they have learned over the past 4 years in the drama program. This spring, Canterbury High School’s grade 12 drama students will be putting on a production of The Laramie Project under the direction of Matthew Minter. 

This play is a true story that takes place in the town of Laramie after the murder of 21 year old gay university student Matthew Shepard. Moisés Kaufmen along with members of the Tectonic Theater Project traveled to the town, and conducted interviews of the community’s views on the events that transpired. Over time, after hearing the stories and views of Laramie, the members of Tectonic Theatre pieced everything together in one swift, and beautiful stroke to tell the story of Matthew Shepard. Not one simply of darkness, anger, or despair — but hope and healing as a community — as a whole. We recommend that anyone attending this production is age 14 or older due to mature themes.

The opening performance will take place Wednesday, April 24th, at 7:00 PM (doors open at 6:30 PM) in Canterbury High School’s Alexander Barrie Auditorium at 900 Canterbury Avenue. Shows continue on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 7:00 PM. Tickets are $10 for students and $15 for adults and can be purchased online at https://www.chslaramieproject.com/ or at the door. Seating is General Admission.
