The Texas Tech Department of Theatre and Dance presents "RENT" Oct. 10-13 and Oct. 17-20. 

A Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical and one of the longest running shows on Broadway, "RENT" has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences.

Based loosely on Puccini's "La Boheme," "RENT" follows 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.

Book, music, and lyrics by Jonathan Larson directed by Linda Donahue. WARNING: ADULT LANGUAGE AND SITUATIONS.

Tickets are $18 for individuals; $5 for students with a valid ID.

Free student rush tickets are available on a limited basis to Texas Tech students. Call (806) 742-3603 for tickets and information.

Maedgen Mainstage Theatre (east entrance), 18th Street between Boston and Flint Avenues; 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays
