“Rent is about a community celebrating life in the face of death and aids at the turn of the century” - Jonathan Larson

The Wellington Footlights Society is proud to present their second full scale musical, Jonathan Larson’s Rent. Led by the aspiring film maker, Mark Cohen, Rent tells the story of an impoverished group of friends struggling to survive and create in New York’s gritty Alphabet City in the early 90’s.

Rent follows these starving bohemian artists as they strive for success and acceptance while enduring the obstacles of poverty, illness, impending gentrification during the AIDS epidemic. With its industrial set and a score that shifts seamlessly between pounding rock numbers and pop style ballads, Rent takes audiences on a thrilling and emotional experience. The group’s dreams, losses, and love stories weave through the musical’s narration to create a stunningly raw and truthful story.

Tickets: $28 Adult / $23 Concession (Student, Gold Card Etc) / Groups of 10+ at $23
