Video: Sondheim’s Assassins starring Danny Mac – cast medley released

Chichester Festival Theatre have released a fabulous cast medley of their forthcoming production of Assassins.

The video features Amy Booth-Steel, Carly Mercedes Dyer, Harry Hepple, Danny Mac, Sam Oladeinde and Jack Shalloo singing a medley from three of the show’s outstanding numbers: Everybody’s Got The Right, The Gun Song and Unworthy of Your Love.

The teaser trailer is a preview of Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s Tony Award-winning biting musical comedy, which has musical influences ranging from The Carpenters and James Taylor to American folk songs and Scott Joplin.

Directed by Polly Findlay (White Noise, A Number, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie), the show will play Chichester from 3 to 24 June 2023.

The full cast is: Danny Man (Pretty Woman The Musical) as Booth, Amy Booth-Steel (Tammy Faye, The Magician’s Elephant) as Moore, Daniel Bowskill (Let’s Face The Music) as Onstage Swing, Luke Brady (The Prince of Egypt, Sweeney Todd) as Zangara, Lizzy Connolly (Sweet Charity, On The Town) as Balladeer 2, Ivan De Freitas (& Juliet, Jesus Christ Superstar) as Bystander 2, Carly Mercedes Dyer (Olivier Award nominee and WhatsOnStage Award winner for Anything Goes) as Fromme, Peter Forbes (Follies, Singin’ in the Rain) as The Proprietor, Bob Harms (Pretty Woman, Come From Away) as Bystander 1, Harry Hepple (Hamilton, Follies) as Guiteau, Nick Holder (The Threepenny Opera, London Road) as Byck, Charlotte Jaconelli (The Wizard of Oz, Heathers The Musical) as Goldman, Kody Mortimer (Hex, Hairspray) as Bystander 4, Sam Oladeinde (Come From Away, A Christmas Carol) as Czolgosz, Jaimie Pruden (Beauty and the Beast, Company) as Onstage Swing, Jack Shalloo (Girl From The North Country, Groundhog Day) as Hinckley, Liam Tamne (Wuthering Heights, Bonnie and Clyde) as Balladeer 1, and Samuel Thomas (The Normal Heart, The Last Five Years) as Oswald/Balladeer 3.

Assassins boasts music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by John Weidman, and is set in a surreal carnival, where there are a group of people – John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, Leon Czolgosz, Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme, John Hinckley, Charles Guiteau, Sara Jane Moore, Giuseppe Zangara, Samuel Byck – who have one thing in common: they want to assassinate the President of the United States. Some succeed, some fail. But there’s a prize for them all: a place in the history books.

The production in Chichester promises to immerse audiences in the action, and will start from the moment they step inside the theatre foyer.
