Last Five Years – Poster – Post

“The Last Five Years” by Jason Robert Brown

“The Last Five Years”

… There are two sides to every love story


The Big Bear Theatre Project
presents

“The Last Five Years”

Written and Composed by,
Jason Robert Brown.

“The Last Five Years” is an emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their thirties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years. The show’s unconventional structure consists of Cathy (Jennifer Gail), telling her story backwards while Jamie (Steve Cassling), tells his story chronologically; the two characters only meet once, at their wedding in the middle of the show when their two separate timelines converge.

Jason Robert Brown’s Drama Desk winner, “The Last Five Years”, has been translated into a handful of languages and was named one of Time Magazine’s “10 best shows of 2001”. This remarkable production from The Big Bear Theatre Project”, will feature a live orchestra featuring the musical talents of Michael Reno (Musical Director), Peggy Baldwin, Sharon Rizzo, Linda Wilson, Josh Pool, and David Castagner. Brian Adams will serve as Production Supervisor, and the entire production is directed by Steve Cassling.

Presented in the amazingly atmospheric ambiance of The Historic Chapel of the Community Church by the Lake in Big Bear Lake, this production promises to provide an evening of beautiful theatre and music you won’t soon forget.

Cassling & Gaghagen – “The Duck Variations” by David Mamet

The Duck Variations | The Big Bear Theatre Project | Steve Cassling | Steve Gaghagen

“The Duck Variations”
… David Mamet’s hilarious, poignant, sad,
and ultimately life-affirming riff on
Mankind, Life, Death… and Ducks!

“The Other Room”
Friday, Jun. 20th 7:00 PM
Sunday, Jun. 21st 2:30 PM

The Big Bear Theatre Project presents “The Duck Variations” – By David Mamet – A concert reading by Steve Cassling & Steve Gaghagen at “The Other Room”, 1116 West Big Bear Blvd, Big Bear City, CA … Next Door To “No Name Pizza”.

“The Duck Variations” is an early work of David Mamet’s, first performed in 1972. Mamet is the author of American Buffalo, The Water Engine, A Life In The Theatre, Glengarry Glen Ross, Speed-the-Plow, and Oleanna, among others, and is considered one of the great American playwrights of the last 1/2 of the 20th century.

In “variations”, Steve Cassling and Steve Gaghagen play George S. Aronovitz and Emil Varec, respectively. George and Emil are two elderly men sitting on a bench in “a park on the edge of a Big City on a Lake”. When we first meet them we have no idea if they’ve met before or if they’re friends, where they come from, what their histories are, or anything about them.

And then … the bell rings and they come out talking … about ducks!


Join Us At “The Other Room” For
Mamet, Cassling, & Gaghagen,
with Beer, Wine … and PIZZA!


And Ducks! Don’t Fuhget The Freakin’ Ducks!

There are two performances only and seating is VERY LIMITED in this small and intimate venue.

… so reserve yours NOW!

Admission: $10 per Person

Big Bear Theatre Project:
Last Chance For “Almost, Maine”


Big Bear Theatre Project:
“Almost, Maine” Will Close This Weekend


With near capacity crowds joining us last weekend for “Almost, Maine” at the new Theater 617 in Big Bear Lake, it would be smart to make reservations for our upcoming closing weekend. We expect to be near capacity if not surpass that this coming Friday and Saturday evenings, so if you haven’t reserved your seats yet, now is the time to get to it!

The Big Bear Theatre Project is ecstatic about the reception our Premiere Production of “Almost, Maine” has received here in Big Bear. From the people who have stepped forward and voluteered to help out, to the wonderful folks who have joined us in the audience and risen to their feet at the conclusion of each performance, we couldn’t have asked for a warmer or more enthusiastic welcome.

It’s our hope to grow from this point and continue to provide both residents and vistors here in Big Bear Valley with quality, professional calibre theatrical productions that will make you smile, cry, laugh, and shout! We have some great things in the planning stages now … and you’ll hear more about those soon.

Big Bear Theatre Project | “Almost, Maine” Opens


Big Bear Theatre Project:
“Almost, Maine” Opens


Big Bear Theatre Project Premiere Production!

Last Friday evening, April 6, saw the well-received opening of the first production by the Big Bear Theatre Project! It was an exciting and fun evening, culminating in an enthusiastic standing ovation by the near-capacity crowd.

“Almost, Maine” is a quirky comedy exploring love and personal relationships between a group of couples living in the small town of “Almost, Maine”.There are moments of raucus laughter and moments of tears throughout this wonderfully written and marvellously entertaining piece. The Big Bear Theatre Project actors turn in professional-grade performances … since most have professional experience in their backgrounds … and altogether this is a really rewarding evening of Big Bear Theatre.

The production features an ensemble cast that includes some of the most well-known and best-loved faces in Big Bear Theatre: Diane Borcyckowski, Steve Cassling, Steve Gaghagen, Dustin Murphy, Tori Waner, and Beth Wheat (Gardner). The Production Manager for “Almost, Maine” is Brian Adams.

Enjoy this lovely slideshow of pictures taken during last Saturday’s performance and provided to us courtesy of Randall Putz.

Big Bear Theatre Project – Almost, Maine Read-Thru


Big Bear Theatre Project – Video Log


“Almost, Maine”


First Read-Thru
Mar 4, 2012


We just wanted to let you in on what went on during our first Read-Thru of Almost, Maine. This will be our Premiere Production going up in April. You’ll find all the information in the video and on the first page of this website.

We really want to thank the Masonic Lodge of Big Bear Lake for all the work they’re doing, and for all the support of our new endeavor here. We believe that Almost, Maine will be the perfect way to innaugurate the new “Masonic Lodge Theatre” they’re creating.

We hope you’ll all join us for this Premiere Production of the Big Bear Theatre Project and see for yourself what a little gem Almost, Maine really is. It’s a great show and we intend to deliver a great performance for your enjoyment!

Enjoy the video … and we’ll see you at the show!
