My senior year in high school (2005-2006) we were supposed to do The Laramie Project. I, initially, knew nothing about it, but copies were left in the library for students intending to audition. After I finished reading it, I was touched and just knew in my heart that I needed to be a part of it. I was cast as the Narrator of the production but the day rehearsals were supposed to start we got some bad news. The play was canceled because 10 upset parents called in. I was so angry that it got canceled, but the cast pulled together and we ended up writing our own show about "tolerance".

Now, The Laramie Project is getting a second chance in Morris County.
It's so exciting to get a another chance with this play. I even get to be the Narrator in the opening 'Moment', which is so special since that is who I was supposed to play last time. I will also be playing Zackie Salmon. Our director told us to use the Internet to try and find out more about our characters. So, I Googled Zackie Salmon and actually came across her e-mail address on the University of Wyoming website. I figured it was a long shot, but I e-mailed her, asking her about herself.  You couldn;t imagine when I opened my inbox a few hours later to find a 2 page letter from Zackie Salmon, herself, telling me all about her life.  It was so special and inspiring.
