Fall Production: "The Laramie Project"

Next week is the opening of Malibu High School's Fall Production of the Laramie Project. The Laramie Project portrayed one town in America at the end of the millennium. But in doing so, it managed to capture something profoundly American, something about social injustices, about beliefs, about idiosyncrasies. 

Thursday, Nov. 21, Friday, Nov. 22 & Saturday,
Nov. 23 @ 7:00 p.m.
Sunday, Nov. 24 @ 2:00 p.m.

Be sure not to miss it!
