HUMMELS WHARF — “Rent” continues at the Courtyard Theater for two more weekends, concluding March 23. Performances are at 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays at the theater located in the Susquehanna Valley Mall.
Tickets are $15.
The play tells the story of young artists, living on the lower east side of Manhattan, struggling to succeed against the ravages of poverty and HIV/AIDs.
The production features a unique set designed by Bob Taylor, artistic director.
“I am so anxious to hear the comments of our audience members, especially those who have seen this ninth longest-running Broadway show when it actually was on Broadway,” said Producer Art Lieberman. “So many people who have said they will be attending ‘Rent’ told me they saw it in New York and loved it.”
Only 12 days after “Rent” closes, the theater will present Ira Levin’s thriller “Deathtrap” featuring a cast of experienced dramatic actors and starring Mike Stubbs, Hope Kopf, Ben Hartman, Fred Hooper and Amy Resele. This play still holds the record for the longest-running thriller in Broadway history.
Tickets for “Rent,” “Deathtrap” and “Lend Me a Tenor” (presented by The Valley Players in May) and for the BeeGeez USA concert on July 12 are available by calling the box office at (570) 374-0060 on weekdays from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., at www.thecourtyardtheater.com or from the box office located near J.C. Penney’s at the mall, usually on the weekends and most days before actual show times.
