Director Janet Cole Hamilton and Musical Director Paul Linnes will be conducting auditions for “The Last Five Years,” which is written and composed by Jason Robert Brown.

The roles they seek to cast are:

Catherine “Cathy” Hiatt, age 25 – 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, age 25 – 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.

A stipend of $100  is paid to all actors.
