AUDITIONS: For "The Laramie Project" at Serendipity Playhouse

In October 1998 Matthew Shepard was kidnapped, severely beaten and left to die, tied to a fence on the outskirts of Laramie, Wyoming. 

Five weeks later, Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project went to Laramie, and over the course of the next year, conducted more than 200 interviews with people of the town. From these interviews they wrote the play which chronicles the life of the town of Laramie in the year after the murder.

Serendipity Players is holding open auditions for men and women of all ages and ethnicities for The Laramie Project. Auditions will be held 1 p.m. May 18 and 19 at the Serendipity Playhouse, 500 Washington St., Vancouver, Wash. 

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script, no prepared pieces are required. Headshots and resumes will be accepted but are not required. Upon being cast, actors should be prepared to perform 8-10 roles. Rehearsals will begin 7 p.m. June 3. Performance dates are weekends July 26 - August 18.

If you have any questions, please contact the director, Tony Broom at 971-563-3661 or at serendipityplayers@yahoo.com
