Hey, this is Asheville. It’s not necessary to “put on the Ritz” for a night on the town. No top hat and tails required.
Join the Asheville Community Theatre as it turns 65 this year. The ACT remains one of the oldest community theaters in the country. To celebrate their youthful exuberance they’ve put together a season bursting with music, energy, humor, and intrigue.
ACT is proud to present the 1996 Tony Award winning Rent, a hot rock opera that follows a group of bohemians struggling in modern day New York. Based on Puccini’s opera La Boheme, Rent tells the story 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. A truly powerful story.
