Assassins
Book by John Weidman
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Based on an idea by Charles Gilbert, Jr.
Playwrights Horizons, Inc. New York City produced ASSASSINS Off-Broadway in 1990

Assassins lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States, in this historical musical 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.

MEET THE CAST

Erin Kristan Dorn (Sarah Jane Moore) is thrilled to make her on-stage debut at SSR. She has previously stage managed Reefer Madness, The Taming of the Shrew, A Streetcar Named Desire, Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged, and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. She would like to thank the cast, the Squolf, John, and Alicia for this amazing opportunity to return to performing in one of her favorite shows.

Eric Hartley (Sam Byck) was last seen at SSR as earthling Otis and alien Grig in The Last Starfighter. Since then he's appeared as Prof. Callahan in Legally Blonde (SMT), Juror No. 7 in Twelve Angry Men (RCT), and as the Bandleader and Edsel Mackey in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (SMT). Twenty-five years ago Eric was a Bystander in Assassins at MTW directed by Tammis Doyle and Kim Douglass! Eric dedicates his work in memory of his parents Hal and Jo, who always supported his theatrical pursuits. They are missed..

David Naber (Charles Guiteau) David is a Seattle-based performer, and is thrilled to be diving headfirst into his first Sondheim musical. He was most recently seen in the SSR production of Reefer Madness, wearing considerably fewer articles of clothing. Other favorite roles include Billy Flynn in Chicago, Roger in Rent, Orin the Sadistic Dentist in Little Shop of Horrors, Princeton in Avenue Q, Dr. Frank-N-Furter in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Gabe in Next to Normal, for which he was nominated for BroadwayWorld Seattle Award for Best Actor in a Featured Role. When he's not on stage, he enjoys twiddling his thumbs vigorously, burning the roof of his mouth on oven-baked pizza, and helping his army of houseplants develop a sentient hivemind.

Matt McFadden (Ensemble) is beyond excited to make his debut with SSR! He was seen most recently on stage at Seattle Musical Theatre (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Aida). Thanks to the cast and crew for making this such a memorable experience!

Matt Langenhop (Balladeer) is returning to the SecondStory stage after playing the drug-crazed Jimmy Harper in last season’s musical comedy “Reefer Madness.” Originally a Cleveland native, Matt has been featured in Great Lakes Theater, the Kenny Rogers Christmas Special, and even the annual White House Easter Egg Roll in our nation’s capital. Favorite performances include Jesus in “Godspell” (Mapleside Barn Theater), Dan in “Next to Normal” (Columbia Entertainment Co.), and working with Chip in “25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” (Huntington Playhouse).

Britt Boyd (Emma Goldman/Ensemble) Assassins marks Britt's third Sondheim collaboration with SecondStory Repertory, where audiences will recognize her from numerous productions over the last six seasons. Other favorite local credits include The Baker’s Wife in Into the Woods (Seattle Musical Theatre), Martha in The Secret Garden (Kitsap Forest Theater) and Sister Mary Amnesia in Nunsense (Renton Civic Theatre).  She has also performed locally with Village Theatre, ACT and Seattle Public Theater. Cheers!

Savannah Lynn (Squeaky) earned her BFA in Musical Theater from Central Washington University in 2017. Most recently you’ve seen her as Sally, in SSR’s production of Reefer Madness. Savannah thanks her loved ones for the never ending support.

Tyler Harr (Hinckley/Oswald) is a Seattle-based actor and director, happy to return to SecondStory Rep, most recently appearing as Zanna in Zanna Don't!. Other credits include [title of show] (Jeff) with SecondStory, Annie (Ens.) with Seattle Musical Theatre, and The Pillowman (Katurian), The Last Days of Judas Iscariot (Satan), and Under Milk Wood (Ens.) with the Penny Dreadful Players.

Dane Vance Creek (Proprietor) is incredibly happy to be returning to SSR, where he was last seen as Pedro in Man of La Mancha. In addition to acting, he is also a solo artist, as well as the lead vocalist for rock band, Rain Light Fade. All the love in the world to Jen, Nyah, and Aislynne. Special thanks to his godson, Mike.
