About Mitchell Antesky

Also known as the "Crazy Bald Guy", Mitch has filled many different roles at FCT and other area theatres, including (deep breath) president, chairman, propmaster, tech director, set designer, set dresser, actor, and director...but not all at once. He is active at Genoa Civic Theatre, Bellevue Society for the Arts, and frequently collaborates with Oak Harbor High School as a designer and technical consultant.

Spotlight Production shines on THE LAST FIVE YEARS

FCT’s Spotlight Production THE LAST FIVE YEARS will be presented for just one weekend ONLY, September 26-28.

Fremont Community Theatre and Director Mitchell Antesky present the Drama Desk Award Winning musical “The Last Five Years”, with music, book and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown, the 2014 Tony Award Winner for “The Bridges of Madison County”. This two-person musical explores the five-year relationship of a couple with a bit of a twist in the storytelling.

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,  telling her story backwards while Jamie, tells his story chronologically; the two characters only meet once, at their wedding in the middle of the show.

The reviews are in!
If you weren’t able to experience opening night, you have two more chances, this weekend only, to see the musical that will leave you moved. Overheard in the lobby after the show… “What a treat to experience this!”


“That was special!”

“There’s great complexity within it’s simplicity”

“I was just in awe over it from start to finish”

What a moving piece of theater. So glad that you brought it to life for FCT!


Monica Siesel  appears as CATHERINE HIATT: The character arcs from a woman stunned by a betrayal and a divorce that she is only beginning to understand to an ambitious, fresh-faced girl in a new relationship.
