"Assassins" Auditions (Musical Theatre)
The auditions for "Assassins" the musical are presented by Governors State University's resident theatre group SLATE (SouthLand Area Theatre Ensemble). Auditions will take place on Thursday, November 15th and Friday, November 16th.
"Assassins" is Stephen Sondheim’s landmark musical about the Presidential assassins and would-be assassins exploring the darker side of the American Dream. Forming a fraternity of sorts, the men and women come together to examine success, failure, fame, and the drive for power in American society.
Winner of five Tony Awards including Best Revival on Broadway as well as the Drama Desk Award for Best Revival of a Musical, it includes classic Sondheim dark comedy into an imaginary world where the various assassins talk to each other about their hopes and dreams.
Why did they decide to try and kill the President?
What drove them to these acts?
How different are their darker dreams from most "normal" Americans?
It incorporates history, the true words of the men and women into the musical, as well as memorable and haunting songs such as "Everybody’s Got the Right", "Unworthy of Your Love", and "Something Just Broke". It is a musical that confronts pain in order to heal our society – a true modern classic.
"Assassins" will be directed by J.R. Rose, the Artistic Director of SLATE Theatre.
