Assassins Book by John Wiedman, Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

A truly dark comedy, Assassins is another revival celebrating TWT’s 25th Season.  In Stephen Sondheim’s award winning musical, our nation’s most notorious assassins gather on stage to violently pursue a twisted American Dream.  Though not glorifying the assassins, by exploring these historic characters using the slim biographical information found, Assassins prompts us to consider their motivations and confront the pain in order to cauterize the decay and heal the sicknesses which lurk at the core of our society.

Blind casting and nonspecific gender casting are considerations. Character ages given are ranges but not absolutes. Overall age ranges- 20 and up with one “boy” role age 8-12.
