4/20/99: A Story of Columbine"
A clip from Act 1 Scene 33 "Hell is Just a Word The Reality is Much Worse"
"4/20/99" is a full-length theatrical production that covers the before, during, and aftermath events regarding the 1999 Columbine High School tragedy. A Foundation sponsored production, written & directed by our Performing Arts board member & program director, Ms. AUTUMN CAZIER; that draws particular emphasis on the friends and family members of the two perpetrators.
The Columbine Memorial, lesser known perspectives, and never before told information, of how an hour long act of terror at a suburban high school, changed the world forever intertwine on this powerful production. Join us for an artistic and memorialized experience as we tell the stories of those involved, help to provide a better understanding around the subject matter, and shed light on the school shooting epidemic that we are currently experiencing.
In this particular scene below. which will be making a comeback in the 2024 run, we are introduced to Susan Dewitt’s first and only monologue.
Susan Dewitt briefly knew Eric Harris towards the end of his life, and went on a date with him only three days before the tragedy took place. Her monologue is based on a postmortem letter addressed to Harris. Within maintaining historical accuracy, the shows goal is to focus on the lesser known perspectives of those directly affected by the terrors and heartbreak of Columbine.
Susan Dewitt: Celine Fleenor
