The cast features 25 performers between the age of 15 and 19 from Bordentown, Fieldsboro, Hamilton, Yardville, Cookstown, Chesterfield and New Egypt.
Set in the East Village of New York City, RENT is loosely based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme. The musical follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.
RENT is the winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 2 and 3 at the Bordentown Performing Arts Center, 318 Ward Ave., Bordentown.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for seniors and children. Tickets are available at the Bordentown CDA office, 48 Dunns Mill Road, Bordentown; as well as at the door one hour before curtain.
This year marked the sixth anniversary of the Bordentown Junior Theatre Company summer program, which has given hundreds of young actors the opportunity to perform musicals such as Beauty and the Beast Jr. and The Little Mermaid Jr. This is Bordentown Theatre’s first production featuring area teen performers.
