This September the Sinodun Players will be presenting the musical The Last Five Years, written by Tony Award-winner Jason Robert Brown. This exciting, modern show will be staged as a studio production in the Club Room at the Corn Exchange.

Synopsis: Cathy, a struggling actress, and Jamie, a budding novelist on the brink of wild success, are 20-somethings in New York who meet, fall in love, marry, and divorce over the span of five years. Cathy tells the story from the end of their marriage; Jamie begins from when they first met. They cross paths just once, as their stories collide during the middle of the show.

As there are only two characters in the show, we are looking to double cast. The show is almost entirely sung, with little dialogue, so we are looking for confident, strong singers (2 male, 2 female) who can deliver the powerful narrative through song. Playing age 25-35.

We will organise audition slots nearer the time. If you are unable to make the audition dates, we will do our best to accommodate you. We have compiled an audition pack containing all the information and resources you will need for the audition. To get your pack, please contact Tom or Sue.
