A high school play is sparking controversy just outside Baton Rouge.
Students at Dutchtown High School will perform "The Laramie Project."
It's about a homosexual man who was killed in Wyoming back in 1998.
But that performance has caught the eye of those at Westboro Baptist Church. It's a church known for sayings like "Thank God for 9/11" and "Thank God for Katrina."
The Church's protest is expected to be met with opposition with some angry residents in Dutchtown. They say.. the kids should be able to just put on a good show.
The play starts at 5:30 Thursday evening.
Count on NBC33 news for complete coverage of the protests.
