RENT follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York City, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, it has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with all generations. We at SCT are proud to be one of the first companies to produce RENT: School Edition while it was still under development, in 2009, and are excited to bring it back for Summer Season 2018!

RENT Content Warning: This Summer SCT Drama School will be presenting RENT School Edition, a licensed adaptation of Jonathan Larson’s award winning musical. The musical tells the story of a community of artists who learn to live and survive during the height of the AIDS crisis. Music Theatre International and the Larson Estate have created this version specifically for students to perform by modifying the harsh language and situations of the script, while retaining the characters’ relationships and gender expressions, acknowledgments of sexual activity, and the on-stage and referenced participation in drugs and alcohol. The song "Contact" has been cut, as well as some of the coarse language and public displays of affection of the original.
