San Diego celebrates love and compassion in Rent – The School Edition, August 7 through 16, at the Lyceum Theatre, 79 Horton Plaza.
This award-winning rock opera tells the story of one year in the life of a group of struggling artists living in New York. The story revolves around roommates Mark and Roger and their friends. While a former tragedy has made Roger numb to life, Mark tries to capture it through telling a story on film. In the year that follows, the group deals with love, loss, AIDS, and modern day life in one truly powerful story. Under the direction of renowned local actor, director and vocalist Leigh Scarritt, some of San Diego’s most talented teens bring this story to life with poignancy and beautiful voices.
