Cade Prophet Memorial Productions is holding an open casting call for its fall 2019 production of “The Laramie Project.”

Those interested in auditioning for a role in the acclaimed play should plan to attend the casting call set for Monday, July 22 between 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Sandpoint Library.

“The Laramie Project” is a 2000 work by Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project, which revolves around the reaction to the 1998 murder of gay University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard. The murder was denounced as a hate crime and brought attention to the lack of hate crime laws in various states.

Directed by Dorothy Prophet and produced by Cade Prophet Memorial Productions, in partnership with the Matthew Shepard Foundation, the play will show at the Heartwood Center in Sandpoint, October 25-27.
