Iconic rock musical “RENT” will hit the MCC Black Box Theatre Nov. 18 & 19



RENT PosterMuscatine Community College’s Theatre Department is proud to present the iconic rock musical RENT on Friday, Nov. 18, and Saturday, Nov. 19, at 7 p.m. in the newly-renovated Black Box Theatre—Strahan Hall, 152 Colorado Street in Muscatine.

Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, RENT has become a pop-cultural phenomenon. The play follows the ups and downs of a year in the life of a group of impoverished, artistic friends living in Manhattan’s East Village. The group’s dreams, losses, and love stories are woven through the musical’s narration 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.

MCC’s production of RENT will star Josh Payne as Mark, Tommy Ratkiewicz-Stierwalt as Roger, Hunter Haller as Collins, CJ Gibson as Benny, Antonio Martinez as Angel, Jenni Colbert as Mimi, Cali Van Zandt as Joanne, Kim Feuerbach as Maureen, as well as Perma Knerr, Jacie Havill, Daniel Samuelson, Teri Walsh, Brianna Harvey, Paige Lambright, Mindy Oberreuter, Sophia Boldt, Addison Hopkins, Morgan Connelly.

The production is directed by Courtney Copper, musically directed by Pat Burr, and produced by Chad T. Bishop. Watch the play’s promotional trailer on Muscatine Access Channel Nine’s YouTube channel
