For me it was great! All i could think at first was that i was happy to get into the play. On our first rehersal we watched the movie and i just love it! It made me cry but i loved how real it is and how they didnt leave anything out. However, when any person said anything that was close minded or horrible (ex. Babtist Minister, Doug Laws, Conrad Miller, Fred Phelps) i muttered under my breath something i do not think i should put on online blog. Right after we watched the movie we we told our parts, and what should happen, i got cast as the Babtist Minister. At first I wasnt extremly happy because of what a horrible person he is, but as the rehersing process went on, i was glad i got that part. It is important because people need to see that there are some individuals that wont agree with everything that we have to say and they need to learn how to get past that. Working on the Laramie Project has taught me that Matthew Shepards story must be told, and that we are the ones that must tell it! And all i can hope for is that in telling this story, nothing like it ever happens again.
