PRESENTED BY STUDIO THEATRE OF BATH This show is not recommended for children. A multiple Tony Award-winning theatrical tour-de-force, Assassins combines Sondheim's signature blend of intelligently stunning lyrics and beautiful music with a panoramic story of our nation's culture of celebrity and the violent means some will use to obtain it, embodied by America's four successful and five would-be presidential assassins. Bold, original, disturbing and alarmingly funny, Assassins is perhaps the most controversial musical ever written. 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. * Studio Theatre of Bath is pleased to announce the cast of Stephen Sondheim's "Assassins". The production will be directed by John Willey and music directed by Courtney Babbidge. Performances will be two weekends, October 12-21 at the Chocolate Church Arts Center in Bath, Maine. THE GLUE: Johnathan Aday, Linda Hildonen, Isabella Jackson, Tracy Kapocius, Rebecca Lewis, Mike Powers, Ben Proctor, Billy Rankis, Roey Reinen, Stephanie Rodriguez Robert Lewis as The Proprietor Dennis Crews as The Balladeer Stephanie Brown as Emma Goldman James McElligott as David Harold THE ASSASSINS: Phil Chin (Leon Czolgosz) Jeff Fairfield (John Hinckley) Rook Hine (Charles Guiteau) Chad Jacobson (Giuseppe Zangara) Vince Shatto (Samuel Byck) Sararose Willey (Squeaky Fromme) April Purinton (Sara Jane Moore) Marc Rodriguez (John Wilkes Booth) Dennis Crews (Lee Harvey Oswald)

Mozart THE MUSICIANS Violinist SUSANNA OGATA enjoys an active performance schedule in greater New England and beyond. She has been praised for totally convincing, spontaneous and free-flowing playing (The Berkshire Review), her musical sensitivity and fire (Boston Musical Intelligencer), and playing of electrifying energy, awesome technical command, and rollicking dialogue (Arts Fuse Magazine) where her concert appearance was distinguished as the best solo performance of 2016. Her first recording in a complete set of Beethoven's violin sonatas gained acclaim from the New York Times for elegant readings that are attentive to quicksilver changes in dynamics and articulation. Their performance of the Sonata No. 4 in A minor is darkly playful, their Kreutzer Sonata brilliant and stormy. The BBC Music Magazine has praised the recording for its "altogether compelling performances" and the music for being "always vividly characterized" and further pronounced that "the atmosphere of excitement in both works is very well captured by Susanna Ogata and Ian Watson." Susanna is a tenured member of the venerable Handel and Haydn Society in Boston, has served on the violin faculty of the Longy School of Music, and was recently appointed as Assistant Concertmaster of the orchestra. She is a founding member of the Boston Classical Trio, the Copley String Quartet, and the Coriolan String Quartet.

Maine Maritime Museum to host author Maxwell Taylor Kennedy for a talk and book signing of his latest work Sea Change A Man, A Boat, A Journey Home.   In his book Sea Change launched in July of 2018, Maxwell Kennedy takes readers on a wild ride as he relates the harrowing voyage to deliver his boat, Valkyrien, a 77-foot dilapidated wooden schooner, from San Francisco through the Panama Canal and up the coast to Washington DC. From day one, Maxwell and his skeleton crew face difficult odds and personal danger in their quest to make the crossing. Everything that can go wrong on a ship did go wrong and often more than once. Rich in nautical detail and humor, Kennedy’s telling of his adventure―its pleasures and perils ― and a hilarious cast of characters involved is a thrill ride. Maxwell must rely on instinct and a lifetime of sailing experience to endure, but as exciting as this story is, Maxwell’s sharing of his life’s challenges, thoughts and fears, and amazing wife and kids, makes this book really special. Copies of Sea Change: A Man, A Boat, A Journey Home will be available for purchase and signing following the talk.  Maxwell Taylor Kennedy is an author, sailor, attorney, historian, and teacher. He is the author of Danger’s Hour: The Story of the USS Bunker Hill and the Kamikazi Pilot Who Crippled Her, and Make Gentle the Life of this World: the Vision of Robert F. Kennedy and the Words that Inspired Him. He is the son of Robert F. Kennedy and Ethel Skakel Kennedy.
