"In NBYT productions, children are given the opportunity to perform, to work together as a cast, and to gain other benefits—such as self-confidence, self-esteem, social skills, and increased focus—of the performing arts. Performances are not only for child actors, but are created to be high-quality, low-cost entertainment for children and families."

In October 1998, a twenty-one year-old student was kidnapped, severely beaten, and left to die tied to a fence in the middle of a prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. His name was Matthew Shepard, and he was the victim of this assault because he was gay. Almost overnight, the town of Laramie became synonymous with this hate crime.
Over the next year and a half, members of the Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie and conducted interviews with more than 200 people of the town. The Laramie Project is a breathtaking collage that explores the reactions of the Laramie community, the depths to which humanity can sink, and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.
In essence, The Laramie Project is about whether we let fear, hatred, and anger define us as a community. And it’s a story that needs to be told now more than ever.
