KANELAND—The Kaneland Arts Initiative (KAI) will launch its inaugural performance of the Winter Theatre Production, “The Laramie Project,” on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 24-26, in the Black Box Theatre portion of Kaneland High School, 47W326 Keslinger Road, Maple Park. Performances will take place at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. on Sunday. Attendees are asked to enter through Door 32 on the north side of building.

“The Laramie Project” is a drama that depicts the account of the townspeople in Laramie, Wyo., following the tragic death of Matthew Shepherd.

The production will be presented by KAI in partnership with the Kindness Campaign.

Tickets are available for purchase by calling (630) 365-5100, ext. 180, or emailing 10911@kaneland.org. Ticket prices are $10 for adults and $8 for students and senior citizens. Seating is very limited in the Black Box Theatre, so KAI recommends advance ticket purchases. Tickets will be general admission seating.

Note that the subject matter depicted in “The Laramie Project” is sensitive, and appropriate age recommendations are for middle school aged students or older. The Kaneland Arts Initiative and the Kindness Campaign will lead a discussion after each performance for interested audience members.
