Due to overwhelming demand, CCM has added an additional performance to the previously booked-up run of Jonathan Larson’s Rent, which opens on February 24 in Patricia Corbett Theater.

As CCM prepares for its first production of Jonathan Larson’s revolutionary musical Rent – which runs February 24-27 and March 3-6 in the Patricia Corbett Theater in CCM Village – the young cast is finding energy and excitement in portraying characters their own age who embrace life in a city where many will one day live.
Later this month, CCM’s Patricia Corbett Theater will transform into the lower East Side of New York City for our Mainstage Production of Jonathan Larson’s Rent. Set Designer Brian Ruggaber provides us with a preview of this transformation today. UC Photojournalism student Jospeh Wilkens then shows us how these designs come to life in our state-of-the-art scene shop.
Rent features lighting by Weston Wetzel, sound design by Valerie Lawrence, costumes by Rebecca Doroshuk, hair & make-up design by Robert Michael Navarre, choreography by Diane Lala, musical direction by Steven Goers and stage direction by Richard Hess. The breakthrough musical of the 1990s runs Feb. 24 – March 6. Tickets are on sale now. Learn more about the production after the jump.
