FRANKLIN, MA —  Heather Pape of Wayne has earned the role of Ensemble in the Dean College production of Rent,” which began Wednesday, Nov. 15 and ran through Sunday, Nov. 19, 2023.

The iconic musical “Rent” is finally coming to Dean College! “Rent” opened on Broadway in April 1996. The Pulitzer Prize-winning show ran for 12 years and was nominated for 10 Tony Awards, winning five including Best Musical.

Based loosely on Puccini’s “La Boheme,” Jonathan Larson’s “Rent” follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York’s Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.

“Rent” is presented through a special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are supplied by MTI.

However, infants and children under 2 years of age are not allowed in the theatre, and children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. All patrons must have their own ticketed seats; lap sitting is not permitted.
