“The Columbine Project”
Paul Storiale's award-winning drama, “The Columbine Project,” directed by Bree Pavey, co-produced by the Whitefire Theatre and Loft Ensemble, is an atemporal retelling of the events leading up to, during and following the April 20, 1999 shooting at Columbine High School. “The Columbine Project” challenges what we think we know about the victims, families, teachers and the shooters themselves.
The cast features the talents of Elijah Archibald, Tor Brown, Gary Clayton, Noah Copfer, Dantzen DeBusk, Madylin Sweeten Durrie, Victoria Anne Greenwood, Barbera Ann Howard, Katy Laughlin, Marc Leclerc, Max Marsh, CJ Merriman, Bree Pavey, Danielle Power, Bryan Rasmussen, Diane Renee, Matthew Wayne Roberts, Devan Schoelen and Nora Yessayan.
The production and design team includes Bree Pavey (Director), Latiera Harmon (Assistant Director), Sarah Hilsen (Rehearsal Stage Manager), Derrick McDaniel (Lighting Designer), Tor Brown (Sound and Video Designer), and Linda Muggeridge (Costume Designer).
Bree Pavey who has been involved with the play since the first production was mounted, and is directing and performing a role in this revival which will mark the 20th Anniversary of the tragedy noted, "This event stands out as one of the first to have such widespread coverage that it was literally unescapable. How that impacted the psyche and culture of America and subsequent generations is something to be explored. The story told by “The Columbine Project” is 20 years old. But sadly, only the names of the killers and victims has changed, reminding us that we are ALL Columbine."
“The Columbine Project” is appropriate for ages 16+. Proceeds will be donated to the Rachel's Challenge organization.
