Rent

by Lorie Lewis Ham



This has been a slow month for Valley theatre. If you have already seen the shows at Roger Rocka’s and 2nd Space, there’s not much else to see in January. Well the Reedley River City Theatre Co. has a cure for that–a way to see pieces of a ton of different shows all at once–Legends: Lullaby of Broadway opened this past weekend!

Last night my son and I were able to sit in on part of a tech rehearsal for the California Public Theater production of Rent that opens tomorrow night. Since the show only has two performances I didn’t want to wait until it opened to write about it, so they were kind enough to let us sit in.

The first local production of Rent in the Valley will be upon us in less than a month, as they open on July 22 at the Main Street Theater in downtown Visalia. The show is being produced by the Fourth Wall Theatre Company and has a special twist of also being a fundraiser for local HIV/AIDS programs.

The first local production of Rent to hit the Valley will be taking place this July in Visalia. A special twist on this production is that it will also be an HIV/AIDS fundraiser. The idea to do Rent grew out of a casual conversation director Corey Ralston had with his student co-director. “This has been one of my favorite musicals for a while and when I found out the rights were available the process just got rolling.”
