“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.

About Jason Lux (29 Articles)
I’m from a tiny town just north of Rock Springs, Wyoming called Farson. If you know of it at all, it’s almost certain that it’s due to its famous ice cream store that will put a half gallon into a single cone. Otherwise, it’s a two-gas station town with ranches scattered among oilfield businesses. I spent my time there building fences, herding cattle, lighting bonfires, and participating in all other rural activities. At 18 I sought out the world beyond Farson. I hitchhiked and rode greyhound busses across the country for a few months, living out of my backpack and exploring the amazing American landscape. I settled in Eugene, Oregon for about a year, worked odd jobs and passed the time until I decided to move back to Wyoming and attend Laramie County Community College. I’ve majored in Interdisciplinary Liberal Arts and Spanish. I enjoy painting, drawing, reading and traveling to learn about different cultures and the vast plains of humanities variations. In the fall I’ll be heading to UW to major in Latin American Studies and hope to cultivate a career in travel and international relations.
