Only two more shows remain in our 2012 Season:

September 27 – October 28
Book by John Weidman • Directed by Susannah Martin • Musical Direction by David Möschler • Music by Stephen Sondheim

Winner of 5 Tony Awards! Politics can make anyone a little angry. Sondheim lays bare the stories of our nine presidential assassins – drawing back the curtain on a group of Americans who took their frustrations too far. Their justifications (set to music!) are just the balm for an election season that is sure to rock the boat.

November 29 – January 13
Concept by Robert Wilson • Based on the play by Georg Büchner • Directed by Mark Jackson • Musical Direction by David Möschler
Music and Lyrics by Tom Waits & Kathleen Brennan

A musical Shotgun can really sink its teeth into! Dark and demoralized, Woyzeck is a financially destitute soldier who has been traumatized by war. The violence of his experience translates into sinister behavior back home, making for an intense and extraordinary night at the theater. Created by legends Robert Wilson and Tom Waits, Woyzeck is a West Coast Premiere, and we’re proud to have it on our stage.

Please note that there will be NO OUTDOOR SHOW this season
All productions will be performed on The Ashby Stage
