CONSIDERING MATTHEW SHEPARD is a 2-hour oratorio/opera telling the tragic story of the hate crime that led to the vicious murder of Matthew Shepard. As part of the production, we are planning a series of pre- or post-show conversations, panel discussions, and activities centering around hate crime legislation, LGBTQ+ issues, queer identity and culture, as well as support groups for our student body. We are also working to get the Matthew Shepard Foundation's Executive Director involved, and possibly Matthew's mother, Mrs. Judy Shepard.
