Bold, original, disturbing, and alarmingly funny, Assassins is among the most controversial musicals ever written. This quintessentially American show lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States, in a historical revue that explores the dark side of the American experience. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, writers Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman bend the rules of time and space, taking us on a nightmarish roller coaster ride in which assassins and would-be assassins from different historical periods meet, interact and inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream.  Contains mature themes and languageRead more . . . .

We celebrate our volunteers!
As a community theatre, we run on volunteer power! Several hundred volunteers pitch in every year to share their talents on our stage, sew costumes, paint sets, hang lights, usher, and much more. This Saturday we celebrate their incredible contributions at our bi-annual Spotlight Awards, a formal affair modeled after the Tony Awards.
This year's event honors the cast and crew from our 2012 and 2013 seasons. We'll be giving awards like "Best Supporting Actor in a Musical" and "Best Costume Design" as well as applauding ALL of our volunteers for their dedication to Cottage Theatre. THANK YOU, VOLUNTEERS!

Former Register-Guard arts writer Bob Keefer is starting a new arts website,

The new site will take a look each week at arts and cultural issues in the Eugene area and around Oregon. The site will offer Keefer's stories and and reviews about people, performances, exhibitions and arts happenings in the community, as well as occasional guest pieces by other writers. Main stories will be posted each Thursday, with news added throughout the week.

Eugene Art Talk will be free and open to the public through the month of September. Starting Oct. 1, the site will be available by subscription only, at a cost of $5 per month, payable online.

Deeply grounded in Eugene's arts scene, Keefer wrote for the Register-Guard for 30 years before his retirement in 2014. He won numerous awards for his coverage of art, music and dance, and was a fellow at the National Endowment for the Arts' Theatre and Musical Theatre workshop in Los Angeles in 2006.

"I'm very much looking forward to providing a third voice looking at the arts community in and around Eugene," he says.
