"Ten years ago on April 20, 1999," press notes state, "the world watched as two young men presumed to be outcasts walked into their high school and attempted to massacre hundreds of their peers. Although failing in their original mission to kill 250 students, the two teens left 12 students and a teacher fatally wounded and many others scarred for life. The Columbine Project examines exactly what went through the minds of several students, including the killers who at one time were just normal kids. Pulled straight from journals, diaries and information shared personally with the writer by survivors of the incident, this true story provides insight into who these children were and who may have also had a hand in cultivating the rampage that resulted in bloodshed and destruction."

The Columbine Project premiered in North Hollywood in April.

Show times are Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 PM and Sundays at 7 PM.

The Columbine Project is produced Off-Broadway by David and Pamela Burrus in association with Bree Pavey and Jessimeg Productions.

The Actors Temple Theatre is located in Manhattan at 339 West 47th Street. Tickets, priced $31.50 and $56.50 (including facility fee), are available at Telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200.
