The Last Five Years: A Musical 

Written and composed by Jason Robert Brown 

This is a COVID safe production. Cast members do not appear on stage together.

An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two people who fall in and out of love over the course of five years, the show's unconventional structure consists of Cathy, the woman, telling her story backwards while Jamie, the man, tells his story chronologically; the two characters only meet once, at their wedding in the middle of the show. 

Featuring a two-person cast, The Last Five Years is a great opportunity for actors with both range and stamina. 

All roles are available. Seeking actors of all ethnicities and gender expressions, BIPOC actors are encouraged to attend. Genders listed for all roles are the gender of the character, not necessarily the actor. All students and community members may audition. Practicum credit is available and high school students are eligible for dual credit. 

REHEARSES: Monday-Thursday evenings March 22-April 15. 7-9PM (individual music rehearsals may occur before March 22.) 

OUTDOOR PERFORMANCES: April 16-18, 2021 at Shakespeare in the Glen on the BC campus and to a world-wide livestreaming audience.
