Gable Hall Community Theatre’s version of the Broadway smash Rent will be running at the school for three nights from tonight starting at 7.30pm.
Rent is a very demanding musical for the ensemble which comprises of students past and present from the school.
Get Rent wrong and it can be a trudge and a dirge. Get it right and it can be a vital piece of theatre full of characterisation, hit songs and verve.
The cast and staff are very hard on themselves. We watched 45 minutes of rehearsal last night. It looked really good because the characterisation was spot on.
Don’t take our word for it: see Rent over the next three nights.
