Synopsis: In October 1998, a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severely beaten, and left tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. His bloody, bruised, and battered body was not discovered until the next day, and he died several days later in an area hospital. His name was Matthew Shepard, and he was the victim of this assault because he was gay. Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie over the course of a year and a half, in the aftermath of the beating and during the trial of the two young men accused of killing Shepard. They conducted more than 200 interviews with the people of the town. Some people interviewed were directly connected to the case, while others were citizens of Laramie, and the breadth of the reactions to the crime is fascinating. Kaufman and Tectonic Theater members have constructed a deeply moving theatrical experience from these interviews and their own experiences in Laramie. THE LARAMIE PROJECT is a breathtaking collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.

Roundtown Players Theatre

Located in the historic district of Downtown Circleville, the Roundtown Players Theatre has been a part of the Circleville community since 1967. The community theatre presents 4-6 productions per year, hosts local events, and provides educational opportunities through workshops and performance classes. Roundtown Players is a non-profit organization seeking to educate and entertain the community through performance arts.

In the 1960’s, a group of amateur actors gathered together to hold fundraisers for Berger Hospital. They called these productions the “High-Fever Follies,” and after several years of success, many from this group decided to create an ongoing theater organization for the community.

Calling themselves the Roundtown Players, they produced William Inge’s “Picnic” in the barn at the Pickaway Country Club in August of 1967. 11 actors were found for the roles and 15 people were listed in the program as production staff. The production lasted….
