ACT I of Benton County is pleased to announce that we will be holding auditions for our upcoming musical production of Jason Robert Brown’s musical The Last Five Years. Auditions will be held on Sunday January 5th at 3PM and Tuesday January 7th at 7PM at the ACT I Centre located at the old West School.
The Last Five Years is a contemporary musical that ingeniously chronicles the 5 year life of a marriage, from meeting to break-up or break-up to meeting depending on how you look at it. The show is an intensely personal look at the relationship between a writer and actress told from both points of view. His going forward and hers going backwards.
Roles to be cast:
CATHERINE HIATT. Female, 20-35. Character arcs from an ambitious, fresh-faced girl in a new relationship to a woman stunned by a betrayal and a divorce that she is only beginning to understand.
JAMIE WELLERSTEIN. Male, 20-35. Character arcs from an ambitious guy on a promising first date with a dazzling career to someone who is blinded by success and ego. He is very lovable, yet makes unintentional choices that sabotage his own happiness.
Performance dates for The Last Five Years are scheduled for February 28th and 29th at 7PM and March 1st at 2PM. All performances will be held at The Palace Theatre in Vinton.
If you would like to audition and cannot make either date, or have any other questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
