About the event

In an abandoned fairground shooting gallery, a group of misfits gather. They share one dream – to shoot the President of the United States of America. Stephen Sondheim (West Side Story) and John Weidman’s theatrical tour-de-force returns to Sydney following a smash-hit season in 2017.

Meet John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinkley Jr and more in this darkly comic musical about those who made history by simply pulling a trigger. Discover the varied and unusual ways that each committed (or attempted to commit) the ultimate crime.

Assassins features an all-star cast including Helpmann award winner David Campbell (Today Extra, Dream Lover), Bobby Fox (Ladies in Black, High Society, Blood Brothers), Connor Crawford (The Sound of Music, City of Angels), Hannah Fredericksen (Dream Lover, Heathers), Kate Cole (Ladies in Black, Sweet Charity), Jason Winston (Cabaret, Miracle City), Rob McDougall (Les Misérables), Maxwell Simon and Justin Smith (The Detective’s Handbook, Billy Elliott).

★★★★ "One of the most daring, incisive and entertaining pieces of musical theatre ever written.”
