Isadoora Announces Auditions for "Assassins" Musical

Isadoora Theatre Company, Door County's only community-based theatre company, is seeking adult actors, singers, and musicians of all experience levels for its upcoming musical production of Assassins by John Weidman & Stephen Sondheim. Auditions will be held November 1st at 6:00pm at Lawrence University's Bjorklunden in Baileys Harbor, and November 2nd at 6:00pm in the Jane Greene room at the Sturgeon Bay Branch of the Door County Library. 

Assassins performances will be held February 9-12 at the Ephraim Village Hall and February 16-19 at Third Avenue Playhouse.  Rehearsals will begin in mid-November.  Singing and non-singing roles for men and women are available.  Those interested in auditioning should arrive at 6:00pm with a song prepared (accompanist will be provided) and will be asked to read excerpts of the script.  Callbacks, if necessary, will be held on November 3rd. 

Bold, original, surreal, disturbing, thought-provoking and alarmingly funny, Assassins lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States.  From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, Assassins takes us on a rollercoaster 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.

An intimate acting piece for a largely male ensemble cast, Assassins contains some of the finest scene writing in recent memory as well as a brilliant, melodic score which pastiches American music throughout the ages, from folk to ragtime to 1970s soft rock.

Isadoora Theatre Company's production of Assassins will be directed by Christine Callsen, with musical direction by Andrew Olson.   Questions can be directed to Christine Callsen by email  

Isadoora most recently performed The Laramie Project, The Foreigner and The Actor's Nightmare in northern Door County and Sturgeon Bay and opens its production of Talking With by Jane Martin on October 20.  Isadoora Theatre Company celebrates theatre through its basic elements of movement, music, story and thought. The company provides theatrical experiences of intellectual integrity fulfilled by open self-examination and artistic risk for the educational and cultural enrichment of the community.
