Update Post Premiere Performance:

RUN, DON’T WALK! But be prepared for talent, tears, laughter, stilettos and a whole lot of things you might never have given much thought to before. This version of Rent is nothing less than spectacular. Credit to Ms. Pla, the crew and the whole cast for a stunning performance.

You all saw the stunning preview the talented cast of Rent put on this morning.  Now go see the full show. The Theater for Social Change’s production of Rent will be at the Center for the Photograph by KSD
Arts this Wednesday, November 7,  Thursday, November 8 and Friday, November 9 at 7 PM.

Rent is a musical with music, lyrics, and book by Jonathan Barson, inspired by Puccini’s opera La Bohème. The musical tells a story of impoverished, young artists who struggle to make a living in New York’s East Village as they face problems such as HIV/AIDS and oppression from society due to their sexual identities, addictions and life choices.

    What an amazing production from sets to costuming and most impressive, the acting, singing and dancing. I hope each member of the cast and crew feels very proud of your performance and the support you gave each other in playing your roles. It was evident that you stepped out of your comfort zone and from an audience perspective, it was clear that you supported each other in every way. The show was as good as any on Broadway! Congratulations and thank you for sharing your time and talent with Country Day and the community.

    I saw the preview in the CFA and I am going to go watch the evening show. All the actors and actresses had wonderful and melodic singing voices. They also acted very convincingly. Let’s go Rent!

    Seeing this play tonight. Can’t wait to see this entertaining play on the diversity of people!

    What a powerful show! It was absolutely poignant. I love it every time I see it, but to know so many of the cast members made it even more memorable last night. Congratulations to all, those in front and those behind the curtain. What a phenomenal “tribe” of performers. With each production Country Day takes high school theater to a higher level.
