“The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later” wins awards from theatre festival

LCCC’s theatre program received two awards at the Region 7 Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Festival this year. Alexander Soden won the Region 7 Legacy Award for Design, Technology and Management for his work with lighting design on “The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later.” Soden won a second award, the Don Child Collaboration Award through the Stagecraft Institute of Las Vegas, along with two other classmates, Emily Grace Piel and Solveig Gasner. Piel was stage manager and Gasner was the set designer for “The Laramie Project.”

“That our students were recognized with these awards for their work is absolutely thrilling,” Jason Pasqua, the theatre instructor at LCCC and director of the production, said. “This show, and the special place it holds for us, makes it quite an accomplishment.”

This is not the first time that the LCCC theatre program has been recognized with regional and national honors. The next production will interpret two plays by James Mclure, “Laundry and Bourbon” and “Lonestar.” These performances will begin on April 19.
