Voorhees Theatre Company presents "Rent: School Edition"

(VOORHEES, NJ) -- Get ready to be emotionally touched in Voorhees Theatre Company’s rendition of this heart-rending and unforgettable production of Rent: School Edition.  This is a show all about falling in love, finding your voice, being true to yourself, and living for today. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, it has become a pop culture phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages.

The plot is based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, Rent: School Edition follows a year in the life of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive in New York's Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. The physical and emotional complications of the disease pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Collins, and Angel. Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art, while her partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship can last. Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves, and conflicts provide the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical.

Rent: School Edition will be performed three times: August 4, August 5, and August 6 at 7:30pm at the Raymond J. Brosel Performing Arts Center at Voorhees Middle School, 1000 Holly Oak Drive, Voorhees, NJ 08043. Tickets are available for purchase online or may be purchased at the door prior to each performance,
