‘The Last Five Years’ Launches 2nd Half of OCP Season

Omaha, NE.– The Omaha Community Playhouse kicks off its second half of the 2020/21 Season with The Last Five Years—opening Friday, Feb. 26. The show will be held in the Hawks Mainstage Theatre at OCP. Performances will run Wednesdays through Sundays through Sunday, March 23. The Hawks Mainstage Theatre will allow for social distancing and other safety precautions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

A captivating, intimate musical that retraces the rise and fall of a five-year romantic relationship. The story is presented in chronological order by Jamie, the man, and in reverse by Cathy, the woman, with the two versions of the story meeting only once—at their wedding in the middle. Profoundly emotional with comedic moments sprinkled throughout, The Last Five Years is beautifully heartbreaking.

Tickets are on sale now starting at $25, with prices varying by performance. Tickets may be purchased at the OCP Box Office, 6915 Cass St., Omaha, NE 68132, by phone at (402) 553-0800 or online at OmahaPlayhouse.com.
