RENT - April 10 to 20, 2024

ACT (a community theatre) is thrilled to announce the outstanding cast lineup for the highly anticipated production of 'Rent' at the Florence Simmons Performance Hall, in Charlottetown.


From April 10th to 20th, six sensational performances will captivate audiences, immersing them in the vibrant atmosphere of New York City's East Village, thanks in part to the generous sponsorship of Kendra Stretch and Coldwell Banker Parker Realty.

"Rent," a creation of the brilliant Jonathan Larson, transcends the boundaries of a traditional musical, offering a poignant narrative that explores the lives of struggling artists and musicians in the heart of New York City. Inspired by Puccini's La Bohème, Larson dedicated seven years to crafting this modern masterpiece, seamlessly blending Broadway tradition with contemporary pop music. The title itself carries layers of meaning, symbolizing not only the financial struggles of young individuals but also the complex emotions of the characters torn between comfort and idealism, love and dignity, anger and pain.


Despite Larson's tragic passing on the eve of the musical's preview, "Rent" went on to receive the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award, leaving an enduring legacy on Broadway. Its universal themes of love, friendship, and dreams amidst adversity continue to resonate with audiences worldwide through unforgettable music and a timeless narrative.


Directed by Maggie Wright, choreographed by Charlee Meadus, musically directed by Jamie Feinberg, and Produced by Mike Mallaley & Keir Malone, this production of 'Rent' promises to deliver a dynamic and emotionally-charged experience. With an exceptionally talented cast and creative team, audiences can anticipate being swept away by the infectious energy and powerful storytelling of Jonathan Larson. This powerful experience will remind audiences to be present in every moment, and to make the most out of every day; there truly is no day but today.
