The Central Michigan University School of Music is debuting a rendition of "The Last Five Years" at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 18 through Saturday, March 20. The performance will be live-streamed to comply with COVID-19 restrictions.

"The Last Five Years is a wonderful show, rarely performed on college campuses due to small cast size," Director of the School of Music, Eric Tucker said. "That is ideal for this time of the pandemic and social distancing."

Jason Robert Brown's Drama Desk winner follows the relationships of Cathy and Jamie. The performance is known for its unconventional story structure. 

Tucker said the cast and ensemble stay safe during rehearsals by wearing masks and following social distancing guidelines.

"The Last Five Years" cast includes CMU students Brandon Chu, Seth Patterson, Kathryn Witkowski, and Elena Zelinko. 

The live-streamed performance is $7.00 and tickets may be purchased online. 

Later this year the School of Music will be producing Leonard Bernstein’s "Trouble in Tahiti," - a one-act opera that will be opening in April.
