JPAC – Education and Outreach Program Recommended for audiences ages 12 and older. JPAC is proud to announce the cast of our Education and Outreach Program’s fundraiser production this fall. We are excited to have Amanda Rodriguez and Brett Frazier play Cathy Hyatt and Jamie Wellerstein in The Last Five Years by Jason Robert Brown. Amanda Rodriguez is an avid performer and has been in numerous productions across the southern Wisconsin region. Some of her favorite roles to date include Natalie in Bower City Theatre’s production of Next to Normal, Gabriella in Broadway Kidz Wisconzin’s production of High School Musical, and Ivy in UW-Rock County’s production of bare. She was last seen on the Bartell Theatre stage in Madison performing as one of her dream roles, Wendla Bergman, in Bower City’s Spring Awakening. Amanda hopes to pursue her passion of theatre and to get the opportunity to perform on stages all over the world. Brett J. Frazier has previously been a regular cast member at The Armory, performing in 13 productions playing a wide range of roles including Taylor in the regional theatre premier of Brooklyn: The Musical, Zach in A Chorus Line, and Scrooge in A Christmas Carol. He has performed on stages throughout the country including New York City, Chicago and at the Wagon Wheel Theatre in Indiana. Previous performances on the JPAC stage have included Jonathan in Tick, tick…BOOM! and Jesus in Jesus Christ Superstar. Off stage Brett now keeps very busy and serves the community as the Executive Director of the Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin and as Mayor of the City of Milton. Brett lives in Milton with his wife, their seven year old son and five year old twins. The Last Five Years is a stunning, song-cycle musical that ingeniously and beautifully chronicles the five-year marriage of Jamie and Cathy, from meeting to break-up… or from break-up to meeting, depending on how you look at it.
