RENT 20th Anniversary Tour
January 27 at 7:30 p.m.
Emens Auditorium

In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway… and forever changed the landscape of American theatre. Two decades later, Jonathan Larson’s RENT continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world. And now, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award®-winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production. A re-imagining of Puccini's La Bohème, RENT follows an unforgettable year in the lives of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams without selling out. With its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters—love.

Ball State student tickets are FREE at the Emens box office in advance with a valid BSU ID. Tickets will be $5 at the door the day of the event. For more information, call 765-285-1539.

Hello!

My name is Rachel Bonarek, and I will be directing this year’s Vagina Monologues in corroboration with the Women and Gender Studies Department. The Vagina Monologues is a collection of real women’s stories and will be performed as a part of Women’s Week in March.

I am in need of a team. Below are the details of both positions and availability requirements.

Assistant Director

A creative assistant to help with idea formulation and to aid rehearsals as needed. Must be present at every rehearsal (see below) and auditions. Non-gender specific. May also audition for roles if female-identifying.

Stage Manager

Additional crew may be added based on need (this is a relatively minimalist show by nature). You must be at all full-cast rehearsals and both shows (see below). Auditions and small group rehearsals are not required, but you are welcome. Cannot be a cast member.
