Known as “the go-to guy for young people and their money,” speaker, author and former financial advisor Peter Bielagus will share how he accrued $5,000 in credit-card debt his freshman year of college.

The Middlesex Community College Theater Department will stage “The Laramie Project” for five performances Dec. 3-6 in the Burgoyne Theatre at Lowell High School, 40 Page St., Lowell.

One of the most performed plays in America, “The Laramie Project” chronicles the life in the town of Laramie, Wyo., the year following the 1998 brutal murder of openly gay University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard. The murder was denounced as a hate crime and brought attention to the lack of hate crime laws in various states, including Wyoming.

Originally written and performed by the Tectonic Theater Company, the play draws on more than 200 interviews with people in the town, company member journal entries, and published news reports, depicted in a series of short scenes.

Following the performance at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5, Jimmy Maize, a member of the Tectonic Theater Company, will lead the audience in a community dialogue about the events of the play.
