RENT - (the musical) - performance

Dear Parent/Guardian/CHS Staff Member
 
We are delighted to announce that tickets are now on sale for our next school stage production, RENT the musical. Book now using our Online Box Office.
 
RENT will be performed 20th - 24th November by our Year 11, 12 & 13 students.
 
Based on Puccini’s beloved opera La Bohème, Rent follows the ups and downs of a year in the life of a group of impoverished, artistic friends living in Manhattan’s East Village. Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, struggles to find his place in the world; his roommate Roger, an HIV-positive musician, wonders how he will leave his mark before he dies. Mimi and Angel look for true love as they face the harsh reality of life as HIV-positive young people, while the businesslike Joanne seeks fidelity from her wild-child performance artist girlfriend Maureen. The group’s dreams, losses, and love stories weave through the musical’s narration to paint a stunningly raw and emotional portrait of the gritty bohemian world of New York City in the late 1980s, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.
 
Parental guidance is advised as the mature content of the show is not suitable for younger children. Questions about this, to check suitability, are welcome; please email Mr Phillips at phillipss@christletonhigh.co.uk.
 
We look forward to seeing many of you at one of the four performances.
