Moisés Kaufman and the members of Tectonic Theater Project's "The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later," revisits the 1998 hate-fueled murder of Matthew Shepard, a gay 21-year-old.

Directed by COD Theater Department Chair Connie Canaday Howard, the script explores if any progress or change has been made in the town of Laramie 10 years after Shepard's murder.

Directed by College Theater Professor Amelia Barrett, 2020 marks the 16th time College Theater has presented "A Christmas Carol" to usher in the holiday season.

Adapted by William J. Norris, the classic tale follows Ebenezer Scrooge as he learns that change is always possible.

Auditions will include a reading of a monologue from each show to memorize or read. No experience is required. If cast, actors must register for Theater 1120 or 1121. Cast members are required to register in order to participate.

Support for College Theater is made possible by a generous gift from the College of DuPage Foundation's Dr. Donald and Helen (Gum) Westlake Fund for Student Productions.
