Tacoma Little Theatre and The University of Washington-Tacoma Theatre Department will bring to life Jonathan Larson's Tony-Award winning musical RENT. RENT is directed by Maria-Tania Bandes B. Weingarden, musically directed by Shawna Avinger, and choreographed by Eric Clausell.

RENT 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. The physical and emotional complications of the disease pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom and Angel. Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art; her partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble. Benny has sold out his Bohemian ideals, and Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical.

Tacoma Little Theatre and UWT's production of RENT features: Zack Fowler as Mark, Terence Mejos as Roger, Alison Rucker as Mimi, Nick Ono as Benny, Emily Castle as Maureen, Allison Fortenberry as Joanne, Darryin Cunningham as Tom, Erik Davis as Angel, with Camren Bleiler, Araquin Boome, Christine Choate, Kiley Dollymore, Christine Dove, Katie Jones, Kyle Laird, Kyle Murphy, Isabella Pettis-Infante, Eric Strachan, and Jada Williams as members of the ensemble.
