Angles Theatre’s RATz preparing to bring RENT to Wisbech stage

THE Angles Theatre’s RATz hope to bring the house down once again when they take rock musical production RENT to the stage next month.

Rehearsals for the Angles’ in-house group’s show have been in full swing for the last month - and members hope to build on the massive success of last year’s musical production of Our House.

The story, by Jonathan Larson based on Puccini’s famous opera La Boh�me, is set in New York and features a number of young actors and musicians all struggling to carve a decent career in the Big Apple and all dogged by the constant threat of HIV/AIDS.

Some characters die, others survive. Either way the pain and desperation they all feel from time to time is poignantly portrayed in song after song as the story digs deep into the lives and loves, trials and tribulations of the characters portrayed by the RATz cast.

The cast of 20 is under the direction of Kevin Shippey. Singing is under the demanding tutelage of Emma Small with choreography by Laura-Jayne Shippey.

The band is being masterminded by Steve Simmonds and the whole production is under the watchful eye of Kerry Ketteringham.

RENT runs from October 5-15 (no show on October 6 or October 13). Tickets cost �11 (�9 concessions) and all performances start at 7.30pm.
