LUST presents RENT!!

What is LUST?

RENT

Liverpool University Student Theatre, more commonly know as LUST, is a student run society based at the University of Liverpool. We welcome local students with a passion for musical theatre, performers and back-stage crew alike. Our aim is to provide quality theatre at low prices for our audiences and our members. Please help us to keep the society alive!

Rent is a rock musical with music and lyrics by Jonathan Larson. It tells the story of a group of impoverished young artists struggling to survive and create a life in New York City's East Village in the thriving days of Bohemian Alphabet City, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.

On Broadway, Rent gained critical acclaim and won a Tony Award for Best Musical among other awards. The Broadway production closed on September 7, 2008 after a 12-year run of 5,123 performances, the ninth longest-running Broadway show at the time.

The success of the show led to several national tours and numerous foreign productions. In 2005 it was adapted into a motion picture featuring most of the original cast members.

Funding

As we are a student-run society our funds are very limited. We have to rely on the money we make on each show in order to continue putting on full-scale musicals. As acquiring the rights and tech for shows is expensive, and we don't charge our audiences much, we sometimes struggle to afford everything a good production needs.

With your contribution you will help pay for the rights, tech, costumes, props and promotion. Anything you're willing to donate is very much appreciated and will be used in some way or another towards the show!

money Isn't Everything

We ask you to possibly give as much as you can, any donation is AMAZING to us! However if you can't donate, we'd really appreciate it if you could tell people about our show and possibly ask them to donate? Again, ANY donation is amazing, no matter the size!

If you do want to come and support us, we'd LOVE to see you at the show! We're performing in Liverpool University's Guild of Students Stanley Theatre on the 26th-28th March 2015. DON'T MISS IT!

On behalf of all LUSTies, we THANK YOU!
