Featuring OFC Creations Youth Teen Performers. RENT follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. The physical and emotional complications of the disease pervade the lives of Mark, Roger, Maureen, Joanne, Mimi, Tom, and Angel. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical. RENT is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. 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 audiences of all ages.
