Myfyrwyr BA Perfformio & BA Musical Theatre students from the Wales Academy of Voice and Dramatic Arts (WAVDA) are to present Steven Sondheim’s Assassins for three performances at The Gate Arts Centre, Cardiff on June 29 and 30.
Assassins’ lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States, in a one-act historical “revusical” that explores the dark side of the American experience.
From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, writers, 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 inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream.
Assassins is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International All authorised performance materials are also supplied by MTI
Assassins plays at The Gate Arts Centre, Cardiff on June 29 at 7.30pm and June 30 at 1pm and 7.30pm. Tickets are available via Ticketsource.
