Summary: Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman bring together the historical figures of the four successful assassins of U.S. presidents and five more who attempted to assassinate a president. In a thoughtful, provoking, and often funny ninety-minute musical, Sondheim and Weidman muse on American rights and freedoms and how these assassins felt they were denied rights and turned those feelings violently toward a national stage. The show also demonstrates how America’s violent criminals study and copycat earlier crimes, especially in shootings, and prefer notoriety to invisibility, as the nine assassins interact in the fictional stage space.

Cast: Will Snyder as John Wilkes Booth; Patrick Jones as Charles Guiteau; Rocky Nardone as Leon Czolgosz; Jacob Anspach as Giuseppe Zangara; Brett Hammes as Lee Harvey Oswald and Balladeer; Josh DeBell as Sam Byck; Annie Levine as Squeaky Froome; Kelsey Roberts as Sarah Jane Moore; Ben Bernstein as John Hinckley; Tristan Strasser as Proprietor; Kat Berton as Emma Goldman and others; Carl Treiber as David Herold and others; Mick Elliott as Billy Moore and others; and Sydney Lyons as Housewife and others.

Stories from the Attic: A Handful of Geneseo Histories

Stories from the Attic explores aspects of Geneseo and Livingston County that might not be evident to students of the university. Spanning as far back as the Treaty of Big Tree, students will be able to see and touch an actual part of the ancient oak–while also being able to learn about slightly more recent things, such as the largest manufacturer of croquet sets in the United States and the Geneseo Normal School. Stories from the Attic will also explore Geneseo salt mines–one of the most important in the US–and the little known existence of German Prisoner of War camps that existed during World War II.

Geneseo Community Players Presents “The Sunshine Boys” @ York Central School
Jan 31 @ 7:00 pm

The winter show for Geneseo Community Players is THE SUNSHINE BOYS by legendary comedy writer Neil Simon! The play centers around two retired vaudville performers who worked together for over forty years, but haven’t spoken in over a decade. Will they reunite for one last performance or will old disagreements keep them apart? The script is clever, fun and absolutely hilarious!

Auditions for THE SUNSHINE BOYS will be held at York Central School on Monday, December 16 at 7:00 PM. Nothing to prepare ahead of time.
