Culver-Stockton College theatre presents "Assassins"
2012 Mar 16Culver-Stockton College theatre students will take the stage March 29, 30 and April 1 for their production of "Assassins." This bold, original, surreal, disturbing, thought-provoking and alarmingly funny production is perhaps the most controversial musical ever written and is rated R for language and adult content.

Cast members for the production include:
