Character Breakdown/Casting Requirements – Assassins 2020

Seeking a diverse ensemble of non-equity singer-actors of all ages. While many characters represent historical figures, our vision for this cast requires performers that visually represent our local community, not necessarily the real people being portrayed. Many named roles will also be expected to double in the chorus.
