Please join us for Williams production of RENT, April 25-27 at 7:00PM.
Theatre Director Jane Martineau shares the following overview:
RENT School Edition tells the story of a group of young people trying to discover who they are, what they stand for, and who they can trust. They are looking for a "connection in an isolated age." They are individuals who support each other's differences, while relishing in their common ground. Mostly, however, they just want to become successful members of society by doing something they believe in.
We understand the subject matter Jonathan Larson chose to address in RENT contains mature topics and can even be considered controversial by some. But RENT School Edition is not about homosexuality, it is not about AIDS, and it is not about drug use. It is about a community of people, each with their own quirks and problems, finding a way to live together.
