RCCP Tackles Laramie Project with Grace and Dignity
The Laramie Project
River City Community Players
The RCCP's production of "The Laramie Project" was presented with grace and dignity by a very talented ensemble. While there wasn't a weak link in the cast, performances by Mike Forsythe, Carol Varner, Brenda Henson, and Spenser Williams were particularly noteworthy. Relatively newcomers to the stage, Jesse Jacobs and Andy Entwistle, provided strong performances as well. The production was very well staged and transitions from scene to scene went smoothly and efficiently keeping the show moving at a nice pace. Kudos to director Kaci Forsythe. If I could find any fault with the production, it would be a minor one - as each scene ended most of the actors did not maintain their character as they exited the scene and instead had to rush off for minor costume changes and preparation for their next scene.
The big disappointment was the audience. Attendance has been less than stellar and this cast and production deserves far better. So, I strongly urge those who have not seen this production to find the time to see one of the remaining performances.
