RENT

2012 Young Adult Production

Book, Music and Lyrics by Jonathan Larson

Follow our production behind-the-scenes on our RENT Facebook page.

Set in the East Village of New York City, RENT is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this musical has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages. Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, the show follows a year in the life of a group of friends struggling to make it in the big city under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. This Young Adults Production will feature performers ranging in age from 18 to 25. Not recommended for children. Directed by Kathleen Clarke Horrigan.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday performances are $20. Thursday performances are $10. Click here to purchase tickets online.
