Natrona County High School drama students get coaching from original cast member of “The Laramie Project”


From the April 16 Casper Star-Tribune:

When Susan Burk talks to theater groups across the nation who are putting on “The Laramie Project,” they want to know what it’s like in Wyoming.

Burk is a Casper-based “The Laramie Project” specialist for The Matthew Shepard Foundation, a nonprofit organization in Denver dedicated to replacing hate with understanding, compassion and acceptance. She’s closer to home this week, helping Natrona County High School students in Casper prepare for their own presentation of the play.

No questions about Wyoming here. For the NCHS cast members of “The Laramie Project,” the setting is a familiar one, but the approach to theater is new.
