Event description: Based loosely on Puccini's "La Boheme," "RENT: School Edition" follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.

This adaptation has been carefully done, working with the Larson estate to retain the dramatic intent of the groundbreaking rock musical, and consists of minimal changes to language and the removal of one song ("Contact") to make it appropriate for middle and high school students to perform.

Set in the East Village of New York City, "RENT: School Edition" is about falling in love, finding your voice, and living for today. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, it has become a pop cultural phenomenon, with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages.
