Morehead Theatre Guild: Assassins

Comedy/Drama, Musical, Play

“Everybody’s got the right to be happy …” or so the extraordinary real-life cast of characters in Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award-winning musical believe. This tour de force is not just about assassination of U.S. presidents, it’s about the individuals who attempted or achieved horrible notoriety in committing an awful act. Most of us, if we know their names at all, know them for this single act alone. Relevant, alarmingly funny, and provocative, "Assassins" is perhaps the most controversial musical ever written. Come meet the assassins and would-be assassins who connect, interact and inspire each other to harrowing deeds in the name of the “American dream.” Presented 2 weekends: Nov. 2,3,4, & 9,10,11 - Fri. & Sat. at 7:30 p.m. and Sun. at 2 p.m. Purchase tickets online at or by calling 606-783-9857 or at the door.
