About the Musical

Set in the bohemian neighborhood of East Village in New York City, RENT follows the lives of a group of struggling artists and musicians, who face the challenges of love, friendship, creativity, and the realities of living with HIV/AIDS. Jonathan Larson's powerful music and poignant storytelling create a show that resonates with audiences of all ages.

Join us in celebrating the power of music and dance as we bring "Rent" to life on the Skyline College stage. This is your chance to be part of something extraordinary. Don't miss it!

Get ready to rock the stage with RENT at Skyline College!
