Stephens College student Kiely Schlesinger waits to give her lines during the final dress rehearsal of "The Laramie Project" on Thursday, Sept. 24 at the Macklanburg Playhouse. The play, which runs Sept. 25-27 and Oct. 2-4, is about the 1998 murder of a gay University of Wyoming student. Although she does not personally relate to the events in the play, Schlesinger said, "I feel strongly that this is a story that needs to be told."
