The show will feature a dual casts, with the role of Jamie being played by Byrn Watkeys and Brand Alexander, and the role of Cathy being played by Katelin Divall and Hannah Duggan.
"The Last 5 Years" is a contemporary musical that tells the story of a five-year relationship between struggling actress Cathy and promising writer Jamie. The show is unique in that Cathy's story is told in reverse chronological order while Jamie's story is told in chronological order, with the two meeting in the middle for a duet. The show's emotional score and clever storytelling have made it a beloved favorite among musical theatre enthusiasts.
Attic Theatrical's production of "The Last 5 Years" will also feature technical dancers who will represent the "memories" of both Cathy and Jamie. This exciting element will bring an added layer of depth and visual interest to the production.
"We are thrilled to be bringing this beautiful show to life on the Central Coast. The Last 5 Years is a unique and powerful piece of theatre, and we're excited to be working with such a talented cast and production team."
"The Last 5 Years" will be staged at the Central Coast Music Factory in May and June, and tickets will be available soon.
Attic Theatrical encourages everyone to come and experience the emotion and power of this unforgettable musical.

Jason Robert Brown's Drama Desk winner, The Last Five Years, has been translated into a handful of languages and was named one of TIME Magazine's ten best shows of 2001. A testament to the show's longevity, and spurred by the show's regional popularity, The Last Five Years enjoyed an Off-Broadway revival at Second Stage in 2013. A film adaptation was released in 2014, starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan
An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties 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.
The Attic Theatrical's vision for the show includes technical dancers that represent the “memories” of both Cathy and Jamie. These dancers will be performing partner work, lifts in mostly lyrical/contemporary styles.
The Attic Theatrical is presenting The Last Five Years at Central Coast Music Factory Sat, 27th May to Sun, 4th June '23
