RENT the Musical is Coming to Clovis!...Clovis Community College's Theater department will be performing the Tony Award and Pulitzer prize-winning musical RENT, by Jonathan Larson, on July 21-25, 2010, with curtain times of 7:00 p.m. nightly, and a Sunday matinee performance beginning at 2:00 p.m. All performances will be held in Town Hall on the CCC campus and tickets are $10.
Based loosely on Puccini's opera La Bohème, RENT is a modernized story that follows the lives of a group of young artists and musicians living in New York City's East Village. Over the course of a year, they struggle with relationships, losses, loves, creativity, health issues and paying their "rent." The musical opened on Broadway in 1996 and went on to win a Tony Award for Best Musical.
The cast is an outstanding example of our great local musical community, with several members hailing from different cities throughout New Mexico and Cannon Air Force Base.
This musical contains adult subjects, themes and language and parents should be advised this production is not appropriate for young children.
RENT is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
