Get ready for our community production of the smash-hit rock musical Rent.
Set in the struggling Lower East Side of New York City, Jonathan Larson’s Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical follows the highs and lows of filmmaker Mark and his artist friends over the space of one year as they fight to keep the bohemian spirit alive.
As Mark and roommate Roger face the threat of losing their apartment, new girl Mimi arrives and falls straight into Roger’s arms, giving him a new lease of life. Together with Mark’s sassy ex Maureen, colourful street performer Angel and friends, the anarchic trio stand together in celebration of their lifestyle. But when the façade begins to slip and the friends are forced to confront their problems, everything begins to fall apart…
Expect an evening of adult themes – including alcohol, drugs, and scenes of a sexual nature – alongside a fierce soundtrack of much-loved musical numbers including La Vie Boheme, Rent, Take Me or Leave Me and, of course, Seasons of Love.
From joyous festivity to heart-breaking separations, this inspirational story is one not to be missed, challenging friendships, addiction, poverty and most importantly… love.
