By Jonathon Larson

Directed by Tom Berger (NY, NY)

Modern version of the classic Puccini opera, "La bohème." Jonathan Larson's "RENT" was groundbreaking, changing the face of Broadway and musical theatre forever. The rock opera deals with controversial and adult subject matters but the message of the show is about love and the importance of love in all of our lives.

This show deals with mature language and topics. Parental Discretion Advised.

An accompanist will be provided BUT please bring sheet music in the correct key. A CD player is NOT provided, if that is your accompaniment. Also, be prepared to move. The director/choreographer will teach everyone a short combination for auditions.

“RENT” deals with a lot of mature/adult content. Due to this, the director is looking to cast 18 years or older BUT we will allow anyone 16 years and up to audition. If under the age of 18, parental permission will be required.
