Welcome to ClassAction and our recent production of RENT. ClassAction produces work that is loud, proud and pushing at boundaries, and after redefining musical theatre for a generation, Rent was the perfect match for us and where we find ourselves today.
At the end of an unforgettable year, we celebrated the festive season with Rent’s message of love, family and togetherness. We hoped that the show's message and music chimed with a new audience, one that is actively engaged with protest.
RENT is an explosion of passion. As a performance about young people living with and not quite understanding an invisible virus, RENT 2021 felt like it was coming at the perfect time. The world is changing and young people are at the forefront; they are saying what they need to say - and being listened to.
After 25 years RENT is still a piece of work that fits with our time.
It was wonderful to be able to welcome a full, live audience back into our studios, together, in the heart of this incredible story and score, with its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of fear; which sounds all too familiar!
This timeless musical celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters—love, and remember there really is no day but today - so go out and grab it!
