Hinkley, Booth, Oswalt and a rogues gallery of infamy. Nine successful or would-be presidential assassins, all assembled for a harlequin carnival of violence and politics, a grotesque perversion of the American dream.
You’re going to love it.
A multiple Tony Award-winning theatrical tour-de-force, Assassins combines Sondheim’s signature blend of intelligently stunning lyrics and beautiful music with a panoramic story of our nation’s culture of celebrity and the violent means some will use to obtain it. Bold, original, disturbing and alarmingly funny, Assassins is perhaps the most controversial musical ever written.
Directed by Dan Beaulieu and starring Seacoast Rep’s entire resident company plus a collection of talented performers from all over the region – a motley crew well-prepared to plot against one of the most difficult shows in the musical theatre canon – Assassins is sure to delight audiences.
The show contains mature themes, gunshots, and depictions of violence. As the show deals with presidential assassins, the show has a political element. If you are sensitive to any of the above please consider carefully before attending.
Showtimes are Thursdays at 7:30pm, Fridays at 8:00pm, Saturdays at 2:00pm and 8:00pm, and Sundays at 2:00pm. A preview performance will be held on November 29th.
