Federation University Australia proudly present their 2017 Graduating Music Theatre Company in Rent.

Set in New York City, Rent is a powerful tale about falling in love, finding your voice...and living for today.

Based on Puccini’s beloved opera La Bohème, Rent traverses the rocky terrain of a year with a group of impoverished, artistic friends living in Manhattan’s East Village. Their dreams, losses, and loves weave through this award-winning musical to paint a stunningly raw and emotional portrait of the gritty bohemian world of New York City in the late 1980s, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.

The physical and emotional complications of the disease pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom, and Angel. Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art while her partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble. Benny has sold out his Bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general.

Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Rent has become a pop cultural phenomenon, with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages.

Arts Academy, Federation University Australia, proudly showcases its Bachelor of Music Theatre through the talents of the 2017 Graduating Company in this dynamic season of Rent. Offered at the Ballarat campus, this course provides training by some of the most respected arts makers, teachers and industry leaders, both in Australia and internationally.
