The Twin City Players Presents: Assassins

The Twin City Players Presents

Show Opens June 9 and runs through July 2, 2017


 The Twin City Players (TCP) announces its final production of the 2016-2017 Mainstage Season, Assassins, music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by John Weidman, and directed by Larry Nielsen.

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, embodied by America's four successful and five would-be presidential assassins. Bold, original, disturbing, and alarmingly funny, Assassins is perhaps the most controversial musical ever written.

The cast of Assassins includes Jacob Holmes, Bethany Nelson, Meghan Pelkey, Rebecca Maxey, John Taylor, James Richards, Noah Yardley, Tim Aranyos, Joel Smiedendorf, Kraig Kirkdorfer, Beth Sekellick, Nadia Sekellick, Cindy Jakeway, Sarah Simmons, Caitlin Sampsell, John Rogers, Jr., Nathan Salvati, and Dennis Higdon.
