‘Rent’ preview free to college students
To kick off the 2013-14 Citizens Bank Performing Arts Series, Citizens Bank and the Palace Theatre are hosting a special preview performance of the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning musical “Rent” on Thursday at 7 p.m.
“Rent” is Jonathan Larson’s musical about a group of artists, many of whom live with AIDS, struggling to maintain their friendships. A re-imagining of Puccini’s opera “La Bohème,” “Rent” follows a year in the lives of seven friends living in New York’s East Village who learn to follow their dreams.
Pre-show festivities will begin at 5:30 p.m. and will include refreshments and giveaways. Seating for this free performance is limited, and advance registration is required. Students can receive up to two free tickets to the preview night event by contacting the box office at firstname.lastname@example.org, visiting the box office, or calling 668-5588.
