The Senior Co-Pastors of S unCoast Metropolitan Community Church (MCC), Reverend Dr. Nancy Wilson and Reverend Vickie Miller are excited to host the Lemon Bay Playhouse Reader’s Theater performance of The Laramie Project on Saturday, May 11 at 4PM.

Reverend Wilson said, "We are a welcoming church and embrace programs like the The Laramie Project which bring awareness about the reactions to homosexuality." Reverend Miller said, "SunCoast MCC is becoming well-known to sponsor programs that emphasizes the need to be inclusive."
The program selection titled The Laramie Project is a documentary-style play by Moises Kaufman about the reaction to the 1998 murder of  gay University of Wyoming  student  Matthew Shepard  in  Laramie, Wyoming . The murder was denounced as a  hate crime and brought attention to the lack of hate crime laws in various states, including  Wyoming . The Laramie Project has been produced at professional playhouses in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. In 2002, HBO commissioned a film of The Laramie Project , also written and directed by Kaufman.

The Lemon Bay Playhouse is a small, non-profit community theater located in the Englewood, Florida area providing a host of activities to entertain, including plays, events and summer theater camp for children. 

One major avenue of entertainment is their Reader’s Theater program. The members perform at local libraries, clubs and other community organizations. The depiction of The Laramie Project brings awareness to the important issues of prejudice and tolerance.
