      EVENT DETAILS
      RENT

      After the sucess of their debut production, Greeday's American Idiot, Casting Call Musical Theatre company presents it's second full scale production, the Jonathan Larson smash hit, RENT! 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, Rent 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, Jonathan Larson's Rent follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. The physical and emotional complications of the disease pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom, and Angel. Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art; her partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble. Benny has sold out his Bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and is on the outs with his former friends. Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves, and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical. This is theatre at its best -- exuberant, passionate, and joyous. ************************************************************************************** 22nd-24th August 2019Doors 6.30pm, show 7.00pmSat Matinee doors 2.00pm, show 2.30pm Manor Community Academy TheatreOwton Manor LaneHartlepool Tickets £8 (£6 conc.**)Recommend for ages 13+ **For concession tickets, please contact Casting Call direct at info@castingcallacademy.co.uk ************************************************************************************** If you would like to help support this production and become a patron, please follow the below link to our GoFundMe page! All patrons are thanked in our programme:www.gofundme.com/f/rentmusicalcc
