Despite the best of intentions, HospiceWits regrets to advise that owing to unforeseen circumstances, the 10th Anniversary RENT IN CONCERT production scheduled to take place at The Teatro, Montecasino on Monday, 15 May 2017 at 8pm has unfortunately been cancelled.
"We are sorry to advise RENT fans and patrons that the concert won’t be taking place and we thank patrons and fans for their understanding.” says Joy Ruwodo, Marketing Manager, HospiceWits. Ticket holders with valid show tickets may take their tickets to any Computicket service centre for a full refund. All exchanges and refunds will only be facilitated at a Computicket service centre. Unfortunately website ticket transactions cannot be reversed on line. “We apologise for the inconvenience caused,” added Joy Ruwodo.
RENT is a one night only fund-raising concert which features iconic and popular numbers from the stage production of RENT including Seasons of Love, Out Tonight, Without You, Will I and Take Me Or Leave Me performed by the original South African cast who reunite especially for this concert.
Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, the musical production of RENT follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished friends struggling to make it in New York’s East City Village as they struggle with relationships, drugs, loss, love, creativity, HIV/AIDS and paying their “rent”. This concert version presents the entire score sung and performed with minimal staging. It’s all about the music, the songs and the strength of the beautiful voices that will have audiences singing along or sitting mesmerized, longing for more.
All proceeds go to HospiceWits whose “no end to caring” motto resonates with RENT’s themes of love, losing a loved one to a terminal illness, friendship and support.
