Based on an idea by Charles Gilbert, Jr.

The anachronistic show explores the lives of the nine presidential assassins and would-be assassins, weaving together fictional scenes where the characters interact among each other with real-life events.

The process of stepping into a new role is definitely not something that can happen over night; it's something that an actor must gradually enter into. There is so much for a performer to learn about a new character; an actor must grasp an understanding about the role's background, who this person is, what they believe, who they trust, how they carry themselves (I could write a thousand more components, but let's be honest, none of us have time for that). Now imagine you have been cast in a new show, and your character isn't even a person (per say), but instead you are an idea, a concept; what if you were history? For Jordan Lunstead, a senior at Auburn University, this hypothetical situation is all too real. Jordan will be playing the "Balladeer" in this production of Assassins, and has the responsibility of telling the story of each and every assassin, through song. In order to wrap my mind around such a complex character, I sat down with my friend, Jordan and asked him a couple questions about the challenging process that lies ahead of him.  (more...)

by Guest Blogger: Tara Folio - Jan 26, 2016

Not every lesson we learn in our life is engrained into our minds forever. We remember things like "look both ways before you cross the street" and most likely every lyric from all your favorite songs in middle school, but good luck recalling the formula for the Pythagorean Theorem. The same is true for acting, some things we remember, and some we discard because our brain needed to make more room for all the songs from Hamilton (what a hip reference). If there's one acting lesson I have carried with me all of my life, it's this: You cannot hate the character you are playing. Now if you're portraying a wholesome and pure character like "Cinderella" or "Gertrude McFuzz", the task of finding the good in your character is as simple as finding "Horton the Elephant" in a crowd of Whos. The true test of an actor is finding the positive qualities in absolutely devious characters like the "Witch" in Into the Woods or "Orin Scrivello, DDS" in Little Shop. To the outside world these characters seem like the scum of the Earth, but it is the actor's job to closely read into the character and discover the motivation behind the character's dastardly deeds.  (more...)

by Guest Blogger: Tara Folio - Feb 3, 2016

Throughout my life of performing, I have always been told to "take care of myself" and "always work to make myself better". I feel like to the untrained eye, this industry seems extremely "I, I, I" and "me, me, me" focused. This idea might explain why in most movies the theater kids are portrayed as the uppity, self-centered narcissists (I mean come on, I know most of us can relate to Sharpay Evans on a personal level). An actor's job is built on introspection, on looking inside ourselves to find our motivation, but sometimes we become so focused on what's inside us, we forget that we are part of an ensemble.

Robert Thornhill Releases LADY JUSTICE AND THE CONSPIRACY TRIALRobert Thornhill Releases LADY JUSTICE AND THE CONSPIRACY TRIAL
by BWW News Desk - Feb 25, 2016

'In Lady Justice and the Conspiracy Trial,' author, Robert Thornhill, continues to ask the question, 'Are we being poisoned?' Investigative reporter, Jack Carson, has been murdered, but by whom? Police arrest mob boss Carmine Marchetti, but Walt is convinced that it was the work of government Assassins, sent to silence the reporter before he could expose a clandestine program that for decades had been spraying deadly chemicals into the atmosphere for weather control and defense. Will justice prevail or will the government's dirty little secret remain hidden? Lee Ashford of Reader's Favorite writes, 'Lady Justice and the Conspiracy Trial by Robert Thornhill is another brilliantly-conceived mystery/comedy novel from the biographer of Walt Williams and creator of the Lady Justice series of contemplative tales. As fresh and timely as all the stories in this series, Lady Justice and the Conspiracy Trial tackles a troubling theory gaining traction just below the surface of public consciousness. 'Whether truth or fiction, the subject matter of this story - and its immediate predecessor, Lady Justice and the Conspiracy - will have readers surreptitiously peering beyond their curtains at the sky above. 'Once again we find the intrepid Walt Williams, senior citizen extraordinaire, right in the thick of a dangerous situation. As the body count rises, Walt understandably fears for his safety and the safety of his loved ones. This time he may have bitten off more than he can chew. 'Lady Justice and the Conspiracy Trial is a must-read for anyone who has ever wondered whether the government is perhaps not always forthcoming with 'the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth' in its response to requests for information. 'Has our government conspired to foist a deadly top-secret program on our planet, or is this just an imaginative and witty tale? It will give you an adrenaline rush, regardless of what you ultimately believe. It will also give you something to think about. 'Robert Thornhill has a noteworthy talent for crafting compelling tales ripped from the headlines of our daily newspapers. Lady Justice and the Conspiracy Trial will grip you from beginning to end and may well color your dreams at night. 'Five stars and two thumbs up for Lady Justice and the Conspiracy Trial.' Robert began writing at the ripe old age of 66 and in six years has penned twenty-two novels in the Lady Justice series, the seven volume Rainbow Road series of chapter books for children, a cookbook and a mini-autobiography. During the past year, nine volumes in the Lady Justice series reached the #1 rank in the book's category on Amazon. (more...)

by Guest Blogger: Tara Folio - Feb 17, 2016

Do you know the saying, "sharing is caring"? Well, here at Auburn the cast of Assassins has taken this idea to the extreme. It seems that in the past two weeks, the entire cast (except for about three extremely lucky people) has come down with a bad case of what seems like the plague. With all this sickness and lagging energy running rampant backstage, it sometimes seems impossible to keep the show running smoothly. So how does a cast with an abundance of sneezing and coughing still manage to project their voices to the last row and sing high notes until their ears ring? (That was a real question; sometimes I really don't know how we keep going.) Somehow, thanks to steamers, tea, cough drops, Dayquil, and shots of olive oil, we have all managed to power through rehearsals, but our ability to keep going comes from more than just our mass amount of pharmaceutical products; it comes from our ability to work as a team.  (more...)

BWW Blog: Tara Folio - Interrogating the Assassins: The Backstage Beyoncé BWW Blog: Tara Folio - Interrogating the Assassins: The Backstage Beyoncé 
by Guest Blogger: Tara Folio - Feb 10, 2016

Sometimes being a theater student can feel like I'm living a double life. I leave for school to be a student from about eight in the morning to five in the afternoon, and then almost immediately after school I arrive in the theater for rehearsal, which can last until about ten at night, or sometimes longer. Between school, rehearsal, my sorority, homework, and just trying to be a normal college student, it's fairly easy to feel overwhelmed a good ninety percent of the day. Most of the time I can never imagine my world as anything but chaotic, but then I remember one person that I know for a fact is always working longer and harder than I am: the Stage Manager of Assassins, Amanda Murphy. Amanda is the ninja that makes sure everything that needs to be done is taken care of, before anyone even realized there was a problem. Just imagine, one person in this cast is responsible for writing the schedules, communicating between the creative teams, taking notes for the director, keeping a eye on the actors, making sure everyone is where they need to be, and making sure everyone knows exactly what they're suppose to be doing. I know that she has about a million more jobs, but in order to actually write everything she's responsible for, I would have to fill up at least three more blog posts. This girl is responsible for all of these tasks in addition to her school work, and she pulls it off flawlessly; she is basically a behind the scenes Beyonce. I know I can't even begin to fathom what a huge responsibility stage-managing is, so I wanted to hear it from Super Girl herself.  (more...)
