“The Laramie Project” opens at Herricks High School

The Herricks High School Performing Arts Department has announced that the Fall Drama Production will be “The Laramie Project” which will open on November 19 and 20 at 7:30 p.m. at the Herricks Community Center.

The thoughtful drama is centered around the brutal death of Matthew Shepard, a young, gay college student in Laramie, Wyoming.  The play does not directly portray the murder but rather approaches the issue through interviews with many of the townspeople of Laramie, Wyoming.  In keeping with one of Herricks High School’s Core Values, the poignant drama will underscore the need for all of us to appreciate and celebrate each other’s differences.  The topic of the drama may not be appropriate for younger children.

Each of the cast members will portray several characters from the town.  The cast has been selected and will include John Brautigam, Douglas Fabian, Kalliopi Grammatikopoulos, Alexander Katz, Ashley Siflinger, Christopher Stahl, Kadambari Suri, Mollie Teitelbaum, and Jeffrey Topper.  The play will be directed by Tommy Gibbons.

Tickets ($10 adults, $5 *senior citizens and students) will become available during October and can be ordered through the Herricks Performing Arts office by calling 516-286-6957. *Herricks senior citizens who hold a Herrick Gold Pass will be admitted for free but reservations must be made in advance.
