The CENTER for Performing Arts in Rhinebeck presents The Assassins, opening Friday night. With musical styles ranging from Revolutionary era piccolo and drum, to folksy acoustic guitar, to the Golden Age of Broadway, Assassins tells the story of America not through its heroes, but through its villains. Through July 17tickets.

Also, this is the final weekend to catch Guys and Dolls at the Woodstock Playhouse. Known in some circles as “the perfect American Musical,” Guys and Dolls is a high-rolling Tony Award, Drama Desk and Olivier Award Winner set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, with an unlikely oddball romance unfolding in comic turn after comic turn. Get your tickets!
