Actress Stephanie ST. James will star as Mimi in the North Bay premiere of RENT at Santa Rosa's 6th Street Playhouse.

ST.

Winner of four Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book, Best Original Score and Best Featured Acress in A Musical, RENT is a rock opera centered on a group of stuggling artisits and musicians who find the inspiration to create and the will to survive despite insurmountable odds and the threat of AIDS.

Inspired by Giacomo Puccini's opera "La Bohème," this Pultizer Prize winning production was first mounted as a workshop in 1994 and went on to an official off-Broadway opening in January 1996. Jonathan Larson (the show's creator who was inspired to bring musical theater to the MTV Generation) tragically died the night before the off-Broadway premiere. "RENT" eventually moved to Broadway later in 1996 where it enjoyed a 12-year run of over 5,000 performances.

Performances are May 28 through June 27, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm.

Tickets are $15 to $35 and are avaliable by calling the box office 707-523-4185.
