Summer Stage Wooster and the Wooster High School Drama Club will team up to present the musical, “The Last Five Years,” at the Wooster High School Performing Arts Center. Performances are set for Valentine’s Day weekend: Feb. 14, 15 and 16. The curtain will go up Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.

“The Last Five Years” was written by Drama Desk winner, Jason Robert Brown. It is a modern musical that chronicles the intimate lives of two New Yorkers who fall in and out of love over the course of five years. In a theatrical twist, Jamie, the man, tells his story chronologically while Cathy, the woman, begins her story at the end of their relationship. The two characters only meet once, at their wedding in the middle of the show. “The Last Five Years” has been rated PG-13, as it does deal with adult situations and language.

Two veteran actors and singers make up the cast. Emily Patterson (Cathy) and Joseph Bruch (Jamie) are both alumni of the Wooster High School Drama Club and Summer Stage Wooster and have entertained in a variety of musical theater productions over the years. They will tell this bittersweet story through their performance of 14 songs in this one-act show. Joining them on stage in nonspeaking roles will be members of the WHS Drama Club. Todd Patterson is the artistic director.

The WHS Performing Arts Center stage will be configured in a black box arrangement. The audience will be seated onstage for this production. All tickets will be general admission for this limited-sized audience.

The ticket price for adults is $10 and $8 for seniors and students. There will be no presale, and tickets will be available at the door 45 minutes before show time. More information is available by calling 330-262-2834.

Wooster High School is located at 515 Oldman Road in Wooster.
