Songs From Rent

The Theatre & Dance Department, in collaboration with the Music Department, is pleased to present a look inside our study of Rent, the musical, on Friday, Jan 22 at 5pm. Two decades after its premiere on Broadway (and winning both a Pulitzer Prize and four Tony awards) the show’s messages of Love, Inclusion, Creativity, and Community continue to resonate today. During Fall Term, 14 students, under the guidance of Dr. Abbey Siegfried and Erin E Strong, explored the themes and messages from the show as they learned a selection of 11 songs. We will Zoom this Friday and the Company of students will share recordings of these songs as well as a look inside their journey with Rent. Come see how we lived, and continue to measure our lives, in love.
