RENT

Wagon Wheel Theatre 2515 E Center St., Warsaw, IN 46580

Fate stepped in the night before Rent’s off-Broadway opening with the sudden death of Jonathan Larson, the show’s creator. The show won both the Tony Award for Best Musical and a Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1996. When it closed its 12-year run, it became the 9th longest running musical, accomplishing 5124 performances. A film was made in 2005 with many principal roles played by actors of the original Broadway cast.

Show is R-rated and presented with original content and strong language.

Bethel College, Everest - Rohrer Fine Arts Auditorium, Mishawaka, IN
The Bethel College Operatic Irregulars present An Operatic Quartet. Four mini-operas, all in English, totaling about 90 minutes of fast-paced comedy.
The opener is “Little Harlequinade” by Antonio Salieri. This micro-opera, is only eight minutes long, it presents and solves a love triangle.
Next follows “Fortune's Favorites,” a whirlwind courtship, by American Seymour Barab, who based his work on a very short story by the author Saki.
“The Telephone” follows, a 1940s duet-opera by Italian-American Gian-Carlo Menotti. It tells of a proposal—or, rather, an attempted proposal.
The final work, and the only opera with a cast numbering more than three, is “Signor Deluso,” by American Thomas Pasatieri, based on a hilarious, confusing, fast-paced comedy by the French master Molière.
