Fighting Chance Productions presents Rent at the Waterfront Theatre on Granville Island from July 13th to August 5, 2012.

Rent, Jonathan Larson’s Pulitzer and Tony Award winning musical that debuted at the height of the AIDS epidemic, is one of the best known musicals of the past 20 years, and was a huge hit for Fighting Chance Productions in 2009 enjoying 29 sold out performances and shattering box office records for Presentation House in North Vancouver.

There will be previews for Rent July 13th to July 18th with the full run starting July 19th. Evening shows will be at 8:00pm and matinees, starting at 2:00pm, will take place on Saturdays starting July 21st. Tickets are available online ($39.25 for adults, $18.25 for previews) and at the door.

Granville Island is a great place to be in the summer and you can spend an entire day taking a water taxi over, shopping at the market, getting dinner, and topping it off with a burst of entertainment at a live show.
