The show will open on February 12th and will run until February 21st with Friday and Saturday shows at 8pm and Sunday shows at 2pm.

This haunting story is about the reaction to the 1998 murder of University of Wyoming gay student Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming. The play itself includes the interviews of people from Laramie, people who attended the trial, public reports, and the people interviewing these witnesses.
Be part of the audience on February 13th for a special talk back after the performance. The talk back panel will include a member from the Matthew Shepard Foundation, the Dean of Inclusion from Grand Rapids University, the Head of the Solano AIDS Coalition, along with the cast and director of the show.
The cast includes James Adams**, Matthew Finkelstein, Robert Finney**, Susan George*, Jennifer Preciado*, Nic Rogoff, Nicollette Rojas, Scott Slagle*, Molly Stats*, Keith Thompson, Rebekah Vega**, and Luke Winders. This cast is directed by On The Fringe founder Maria Stats*. Join the wonderful cast of The Laramie Project in keeping this enduring story alive. This story will spotlight real issues in our society so help embrace diversity, build awareness, and erase hate by coming to be part of Matthew’s story.
