The Katrina Project: Hell and High Water
Ten years later, an emotional journey into the hearts and souls of Hurricane Katrina's survivors, "The Katrina Project: Hell and High Water", written by Michael Marks and Mackenzie Westmoreland, is getting its second wind this summer.

The Katrina Project is based on actual interviews, collected stories, and found text, providing a voice of the greatest natural disaster in America's recorded history.

The play follows a diverse group of characters as they reflect on and experience the devastation, heart-break, anger, and ultimately, hope, of the thousands affected by the Category 5 storm.

The play enjoyed a successful run in 2005, winning State Drama Festival, national first runner-up honors, and  a command performance before congress in Washington, D.C.

In addition, the production generated (and continues to do so via designated royalties) over $288 thousand in relief monies to disaster victims.

The play continues to be performed around the world with recent performances in Australia and Canada.

This exciting tenth year revival production will include  new original music as well as some new additional scenes written especially for this show.  

The all-star cast includes some of the Pine Belt area's favorite thespians such as Dick and Jane Allison, Tom Hardy, Joe Van Zandt, and Chris Wooten; local celebrities such as former news anchor Colleen Munkel, Miss Mississippi Jasmine Murray, and retired WDAM meteorologist Randy Swan; local school administrators including HPSD assistant principal Dr. Kesia Pope; renowned speech and debate coach and theater director Rapahel Scott Waldrop; Purvis High theater director Dana Coughlan; and Laurel schools administrator of the year, Tito Lanier, who returns to direct the chorus for this show.  In additional, several prominent national talents return to their Pine Belt roots to be part of this production including actor, producer, filmmaker and director Miles Doleac (Los Angeles); playwright, actor, producer, and director Mackenzie Westmoreland (New York); musician and broadway performer Clifton Hyde (New York); and television actor and reality star Reece Albritton (Los Angeles).  A special photo display by renowned photo journalist Matt Bush will also be part of the production.
