Dietrich Theater and Keystone College to Host Auditions

The Dietrich Theater and Keystone College will be co-producing the play “The Laramie Project” in April 2014. This is the true story of Matthew Shepard, a 21 year old University of Wyoming student who was kidnapped, severely beaten, tied to a fence and left to die because he was gay. The show details the effects of his death told by the residents of a small town that was forever changed by a hate crime.
Performances will be on two consecutive weekends – April 4, 5, 6 at the Theater at Brooks at Keystone and April 11, 12, 13 at the Dietrich. Needed are 20 women and men ages 18 – 70 who will play a variety of roles. Audition dates will be announced in January 2014, and audition scenes will be available on the website
Producers are also looking for people interested in working behind the scenes. Those with technical or backstage experience or a willingness to learn should call the Dietrich at 570-996-1511. Everyone is encouraged, regardless of experience; this is a non-equity production incorporating both students and community members.

About Author

Managing Editor of, dedicated to providing interesting information about life in the Endless Mountains region of northern Pennsylvania. The website - a meager investment with no immediate return - is meant to be community-based and to reflect the varied tastes of its readers. Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening. I am also a self-employed media consultant and freelance writer/editor, providing professional services for businesses, municipalities, and organizations for which retaining a full time staff writer is not a viable option.
