New Bern Civic Theatre is looking for actors, singers and dancers for the smash hit:
RENT(Musical, Rated R)
Book, Music, and Lyrics by Jonathan Larson
Directed by John Van Dyke
Produced by Jennifer Blalock
Musical Direction by Brandon Banks
Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, RENT follows a year in the life of a group of friends struggling to make it in the big city. They include Mark, a filmmaker and the narrator of the story; his former girlfriend, Maureen, a performance artist; Maureen's lover, Joanne, a public interest lawyer; Mark's roommate Roger, a musician; Mimi, an exotic dancer, with whom Roger falls in love; Tom Collins, a computer genius; Collins' lover, Angel, a street musician and drag queen; and Benny, a former member of the group who, after marrying into a wealthy family, has become their landlord. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves, and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical.
