On February 24, 2017 the East Brunswick Votech School Gender Sexual Minorities, and Allies Club, along with their theatre department and thespian troupe 8020, in East Brunswick New Jersey, had their performance of The Laramie Project in honor of Stanley Almodovar III. The LPP team would like to thank everyone involved in this production for sharing your art and giving your time to be involved in the LPP. Also, a special thanks to Miss Aladren, advisor and teacher of the MCVTS Theatre, for all the dedication to The Laramie Project Project! And a shout-out to President of the GSMA club, Lauren Cyrus, and VP of the GSMA club, Jose Dominguez.
The EBVT students had a very clever idea that they used on their twitter, @ebvtgsma, to promote their show. Their 10-day photo challenge asked followers to, each day, post a photo that corresponded with the word of the day. All of the words had to do with The Laramie Project–like faith, love, and angels. The LPP team had a fun time participating in this!
The students even made art inspired by the show and their experience (pictured below.)
Thank you all so much for giving us all a little more HOPE.
LPP Team Members Cassidy and Alyssa
