More Information


Weaving together dream-like narratives of the assassinations and attempted assassinations of the U.S. presidents, Sondheim’s Tony Award-winning musical comedy brings to light the pain of alienation, regret, and isolation that underlies each character’s failure to achieve the American Dream. The New York Times hails Assassins as “an extraordinarily original piece of theater,” and the __L____.____A____.__ Times says “Sondheim’s killer musical comedy hits the mark…sidesplitting and sobering in equal measure, this is the most provocative musical in years.”

Portraying the “Assassins” will be Sam Button-Harrison (The Balladeer/Lee Harvey Oswald), Nicholas Druzbanski (Samuel Byck), Joey Eovaldi (Billy), Edward Fraim (Charles Guiteau), Libby Lane (Sara Jane Moore), Aram Monisoff (Leon Czolgosz), Kiley Moore (Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme), Ed Rutherford (John Hinckley) , Michael Swisher (Proprietor), Kevin Webb (John Wilkes Booth) and Kris Hyland (Giuseppe Zangara. A talented ensemble including Morgan Glynn Briggs, Parker Guidry, Natalie June and Jameson Wentworth rounds out the cast.

The design team includes Billy Pacholski (Director/Executive Producer), Robert Ollis (Musical Director), Danny Starr (Choreographer), Nick Passaflume (Scenic Design), Chris Tuttle (Costume Design), Kevin Oliver-Krohn (Lighting Design), Peter Storms (Sound Design), Ryan Fukuda (Video Production), Curtis Cassell (Production and Property Design), Frank Mares (Projections), Cassy Sanders (Dramaturg), Adam Goldstein (Dialect Coach ) and  Zach Zulauf (Assistant Director). Charlie Rasmann is Stage Manager; Shelly Hansen is Assistant Stage Manager.
