Wild Horse Stage Company is proud to present the Carson City premiere of the smash hit Broadway musical RENT just in time for its 25th anniversary! For a quarter of a century, Jonathan Larson’s RENT has inspired us to choose love over fear and to live without regret. Winner of four Tony awards including Best Musical and a Pulitzer Prize for Drama, RENT has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences across generations.
RENT follows an unforgettable year in the lives a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York’s Lower East Side, under the shadow of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the early 1990s. Director Sierra Scott said “This groundbreaking rock musical brings a message of joy and hope in the face of uncertainty that still resonates as much today as it did 25 years ago. Although it is set in a different time with a different kind of epidemic, the story of how we strive for human connection to get through difficult times is relevant and relatable now more than ever.”
The talented cast features Tabitha Andrews, Alicia Borden, Xander Borg (Mark), Tiffany Cornejo (Mimi), Serena Dantzler (Joanne), Jessica Grimaldo, Nadia Hill, Megan Rose Nelson, Jake Nichols, Quentin Powers (Roger), Michael Rapisora (Benny), John Paul Rivard (Angel), Michael Smith III (Tom Collins), Baylee Spear, Ethan Spier, Rachel Vallin, Kaleb Vaughn, Lara Vo (Maureen), Ryan Walker, and Trevor Young. The creative team includes Directors Tara Burke and Sierra Scott, Musical Director Marshall Jones, and Assistant Choreographer Cassidy Buchan.
Don’t miss this iconic rock musical’s pure rush of adrenaline, passion, energy and joy that reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters — love.
