20 Oct - 4 Nov
Do whatever you can to hear “Seasons of Love” performed by this outstanding cast

Presented by Hunter Drama

The much celebrated rock musical by Jonathan Larson, returns to Newcastle once more.

Loosely based on Puccini's opera La Bohème, RENT tells the story of a group of impoverished young artists struggling to survive and create a life in New York City's East Village in the thriving days of Bohemian Alphabet City, under the shadow of HIV.

Ripping across our universe for the first time in 1994, RENT became Broadway’s signature smash-hit. Now, over 20 years later, it remains a potent mix of confronting themes, belting rock anthems and universal messages that still resonate today. RENT is ultimately a story about tolerance, inclusion, compassion, love and figuring out how we fit in.

With 4 previous stagings here in Newcastle, RENT is arguably the city’s favourite musical. Featuring 16 of the region's most outstanding performers, made up of members of the original Newcastle productions and a line-up of new faces, this production will be an awesome cocktail of experience and freshly charged energy. Supported by a phenomenal live 5 piece band and Multi-award winning director Daniel Stoddart, this season of RENT is sure to be one of the most memorable to have ever been staged in Newcastle.

Winner of 4 Tony Awards (including Best Musical), 6 Drama Desk Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
