Five Years is an emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New
Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five
years. The show’s unconventional
structure consists of Cathy, the woman, telling her story backwards while
Jamie, the man, tells his story chronologically; the two characters only meet
once, at their wedding in the middle of the show. JRB won Drama Desk Awards for
the music and the lyrics after the Off-Broadway premiere in 2002 starring
Norbert Leo Butz and Sherie Rene Scott. The show has since been produced at
almost every major regional theater in the US,
and has been seen in the UK,
Korea, Japan, the Philippines,
Germany, Italy, Canada,
Since its inception in 1975, The Heritage Players, Inc.
has offered good family entertainment at affordable prices to the community.
The Heritage Players’ productions include dramas, mysteries, comedies and
musicals, some well-known and some original scripts by talented local writers.
In the spring of 1996, THP moved to Catonsville United
from Ames United
in Pikesville. Since the move, they have been
able to produce a wide variety of shows, from hit musicals like Oklahoma and Into
the Woods, to smash Broadway plays like Noises Off! They have also offered Shakespeare productions
performed at the nearby Lurman Woodland Theater.
The Heritage Players have always aimed for excellence in performance while
providing a climate for growth in the theatrical experience of our members, and
have always believed in philanthropy for the benefit of the community. Since
1975, THP have donated over $40,000 to charitable organizations in the Baltimore metropolitan
area. What makes these donations even more special is that the cast and crew
for each main stage show choose the charity that will receive the benefit from
their dedicated hard work.
In August 2008, THP moved to the Rice Auditorium at the Spring
