Ocean County College Theatre Company Presents
The Laramie Project
By Moisés Kaufman & the Members of Tectonic Theatre Project
On October 7, 1998, a young gay man was discovered bound to a fence in the hills outside Laramie, Wyoming, savagely beaten and left to die in an act of brutality and hate that shocked the nation. Matthew Shepherd's death became a national symbol of intolerance, but for the people of Laramie, Wyoming the event was deeply personal, and it is their voices we hear in this stunningly effective theatre piece. The Laramie Project dispels the simplistic media stereotypes and explores the depth to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable. Strong language and adult content.

The Ridgewood Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company
H.M.S. Pinafore
H.M.S. Pinafore, or “The lass that loved a Sailor, the fourth collaboration between Gilbert & Sullivan was their first blockbuster hit, opening on May 28, 1978. It is among the most popular Gilbert & Sullivan operas mainly because of its infectious tunes and well-constructed libretto. Pinafore is imbued with mirth and silliness to spare with the opera’s gentle satire building upon the theme of love between members of different social classes which all works out in the end!
