October marks the 12th anniversary of the kidnapping, beating and murder of gay Wyoming college student Matthew Shepard. As New York City's Tectonic Theater Project marks the anniversary with Penn State's Eisenhower Auditorium presentations of "The Laramie Project" and "The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later, An Epilogue" (Oct. 6 and 7, respectively), universities such as Penn State and communities across the country are left with the question, "Have things really changed?" Both plays are at 7:30 p.m. in Eisenhower Auditorium on Penn State's University Park campus.
Tickets for one play are $32 for an adult, $15 for a University Park student, and $26 for a person 18 and younger. Tickets for both plays are $50 for an adult, $20 for a University Park student, and $40 for a person 18 and younger.
