Rent at CCPA
Cast members from City Circle’s 2009 sold-out teen production of RENT reunite to reprise their roles in this highly acclaimed Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning rock musical with music and lyrics by Jonathan Larson based on Puccini’s opera La Boheme. “We are so excited to revisit this awesome cast after four years and see how they've changed, grown and experienced life. They are now the actual ages of the characters they so memorably portrayed, and so we will get a chance to see and hear this play in a way simultaneously fresh and nostalgic. Seasons of Love indeed!” says City Circle Community Rep Chris Okiishi.
RENT is an inspiring story about friends and artists struggling in New York City’s East Village. Its musical score shifts easily between pounding rock numbers and pop-style ballads, while tackling addiction, poverty, AIDS, and most of all, love.
RENT will be performed August 2 and 3 at 7:30pm and August 4 at 2pm at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts.
Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.coralvillearts.org/ or by calling 319.248.9370 or in person at the CCPA box office at 1301 5th Street and at the Coralville Recreation Center at 1506 8th Street.
