Assassins – Audition Information Pack

assassins banner

Bold, original, surreal, disturbing, thought-provoking and alarmingly funny, Assassins is perhaps the most controversial musical ever written.

This most American of musicals lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States, in a one act historical show that explores the dark side of the American experience. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman bend the rules of time and space, taking us on a nightmarish roller coaster ride in which assassins and would-be assassins from different historical periods meet, interact and in an intense final scene inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream.


Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th June Old Nick, 50a Letitia St North Hobart

  1. Hi Old Nick
    Do you ever consider original works to perform?
    My two part play has been performed as two one act plays at the Melbourne int comedy festival and the Melbourne Midsumma festival. I’d be happy to send it to you for consideration.
