HARLOW college drama students brought to life the musical Rent for their final performance of the year. It tackles important topics such as homosexuality, homelessness and the AIDS/ HIV around the time of the 1990s.
The students have been rehearsing since February and as a result of bringing Rent to life, they incorporated live music and pulled the performing arts closer together than ever before.
In the rehearsals, student faced a lot of challenges when it came to vocals as well as the challenging themes. Natalie Smyth the directing chorographer of the show said: “We covered this as a group and have had lots of in-depth discussions about approaching difficult subjects but also being able leave them in the room and not carry them with you”
The show was a complete sell out shows and packed the Glassbox Theatre at the college.
