Current Production: The Laramie Project
March 24-April 9, 2017

Directed by Lenore Stjerne


In October 1998, a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severely beaten, and left tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. His bloody, bruised, and battered body was not discovered until the next day, and he died several days later in an area hospital. His name was Matthew Shepard, and he was the victim of this assault because he was gay. Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie over the course of a year and a half, in the aftermath of the beating and during the trial of the two young men accused of killing Shepard. They conducted more than 200 interviews with the people of the town. Some people interviewed were directly connected to the case, while others were citizens of Laramie, and the breadth of the reactions to the crime is fascinating. Kaufman and Tectonic Theater members have constructed a deeply moving theatrical experience from these interviews and their own experiences in Laramie. THE LARAMIE PROJECT is a breathtaking collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.

Not suitable for small children (content and language).

The Theater History

The theater was founded in 1961 as the Westminster Players with the presentation of Applause.  The building was constructed in 1974 and the first show presented on May 31, 1974, was Don't Drink the Water.  The building seats 122 persons and is presented in a Thrust Stage format.

Westminster Community Playhouse is a not for profit organization founded in 1961.  The board of directors consists of 12 full time members elected by the general membership and each member serves for 2 years.  Our board meetings are on the first Wednesday of each month starting at 7:00 PM, the public is invited. The theater is a non-equity volunteer organization.   The theater has presented hundreds of plays since 1961.  The season consists of 6 shows, usually 1 musical, 1 murder mystery (and/or 1 drama) and 3 or 4 comedies.  The shows are presented for 3 weeks with 7-8 weeks of rehearsals.  Show times are Fridays at 8:00 PM, Saturdays at 8:00 PM and 3 public Sunday matinees at 2:00 PM.  Please contact the Secretary (on the AboutUs page) for group rate and season ticket information. At the end of the year we have a presentation entitled The Abbey Awards. Here all actors from all shows are eligible for winning in their particular category, as well as Best Director and Best Show. The public is also invited and elections for new board members are cast by the members of the theater. A member is anyone who donates at least 20 hours during a season. We encourge everyone to get involved with your community theater. If you are interested in WCP, contact any of the board members by email - or call the voice mail/lobby number.
