Osceola Arts presents The Last Five Years

Posted on Friday, February 2, 2018 at 12:42 pm

Osceola Arts will open this season’s Stage Left Studio Series with The Last Five Years next month.

This popular musical begins on Friday, Feb. 9 and runs through Sunday, Feb. 18 and is directed by first-time Osceola Arts director Josh Eleazer.

Named one of TIME Magazine’s 10 best shows in 2001, The Last Five Years was written by acclaimed playwright and composer Jason Robert Brown. The story explores the five-year relationship between Jamie, a novelist on the rise and Cathy, a struggling actress. This emotionally powerful musical features an unconventional structure that tells Jamie’s version of their story chronologically and Cathy’s version in reverse. Osceola Arts newcomer Ashlyn Bigley will take on the role of Cathy, while Cameron Hale Elliott, the emcee in last summer’s sold out production of Cabaret, will play Jamie. The talented duo will be accompanied by pianist Ciara de Leon during each performance.

Tickets for The Last Five Years start at only $15 with showtimes on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. The Stage Left Studio Series provides compelling theatre that doesn’t shy away from the unexpected and is recommended for mature audiences.

Osceola Arts presents Central Florida artists Sally and Stefan Alexandres in their art exhibit Home- Planet Earth. Sally and Stefan believe that civilization begins at home, the place where the family experience influences and cultivates the soul and spirit. Regardless of where we are born, we are citizens on this planet. What happens thousands and thousands of miles away can influence everybody anywhere. The exhibition is dedicated to planet Earth and to all the amazing miracles that happen on it every day. Sally and Stephan Alexandres invite you to enjoy the journey of Home-Planet Earth through this visual and philosophical exhibition in the Studio Gallery through Feb. 28. This exhibit is free and open to the public during regular business hours and during all performances.
