This year’s school Musical will be RENT.
Based on Puccini’s opera La Bohème, RENT follows the ups and downs of a year in the life of a group of impoverished, artistic friends living in Manhattan’s East Village. Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, struggles to find his place in the world; his roommate Roger, an HIV-positive musician, wonders how he will leave his mark before he dies. Mimi and Angel look for true love as they face the harsh reality of life as HIV-positive young people, while the business-like Joanne seeks fidelity from her wild-child performance artist girlfriend Maureen.
The group’s dreams, losses, and love stories weave through the musical’s narration to paint a stunningly raw and emotional portrait of the gritty bohemian world of New York City in the late 1980s/early 1990s, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.
RENT will be performed on Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th July, doors open at 7pm with the performance commencing at 7.30pm in the Main Hall. Tickets are priced at £7 each and will go on sale in school from Monday 20th June.
The Parents’ Association is producing the programme for the musical and have the following advertising spaces available. All funds raised go towards school projects.
