The rock musical, loosely based on Puccini's opera 'La Boheme', is centred on a group of struggling young artists trying to make their way in the world.

It was written in New York by Jonathan Larson during a growing HIV/AIDS crisis and subsequently praised for its positive representation of those living with the virus.

Rent's most famous song is Seasons of Love, which conveys the show's main messages of love and friendship.

Tickets, priced at £15 each, are available on the door, via the Dereham Theatre Company website, or from Bright and Beautiful Flowers in Dereham town centre.
