Announcing...the Cast and Crew of Rent!

On the heels of the wild success of the fall play– Qui Nguyen’s She Kills Monsters–Lincoln School’s Performing Arts Department is thrilled to announce the cast and crew of the spring musical, Jonathan Larson’s Tony Award-winner Rent!

“I can’t remember a musical where we spent more time working on casting the show,” shared Performing Arts Department Head Robb Barnard. “Everyone did a super job and we did indeed agonize over the casting, meeting numerous times to come to what we really believe will be the best arrangement for all of us to have a super time working on this show.”

Congratulations to the cast and crew members below, who began rehearsals this week! And mark your calendars–Rent will take place on Friday, March 1 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, March 2 at 2 p.m. in Lincoln’s Music Center.
