I thought the actors did a amazing job. Some of the reviews I saw were commenting on the fact that it is a youth theater group. I felt that they did a great job and I wasn't thinking about their ages at all. At the end we got to hear one more song...continued

The teenagers performing this musical had lots of energy and enthusiasm, but were in over their heads, I'm afraid. I think there's a lot of talent there, but this was a big production to try to pull off. The singing was uneven, the spoken lines...continued

I've been a fan of RENT for a long time and this production lived up to my expectations. Exceptionally strong leads, beautiful harmonies...I loved it and would definitely recommend this production!

California Youth Conservatory Theatre has just closed a two-week run of Rent, not the school version, the real thing. A sensational five-piece band provided backup for the production, which was excitingly directed by Shawn T. Evans. Karole Foreman...continued

The young cast for this show are incredibly talented. Even though they were performing in front of a small audience on Sunday evening their energy was not dimenished. These actors put their all into this show and were so moving that several times...continued

I saw the show on Broadway and loved it; my experience with the CYC production was not a disappointment. The cast did a wonderful job - gave their all even when the audience wasn't giving much back. The principle actors were extremely talented. ...continued

I've been to a few CYC productions and they always put on a professional performance with these young people. This was the most challenging production yet and they came through brilliantly, once again. The acting is great, the set was minimal...continued

This event was fantastic. Although it is the youth version it was done very professionally and the kids were very believable in the adult parts. We loved it and recommend it highly.

This was a wonderful production with an extremely talented cast. The message of Rent is still so important and to have it presented by a youth cast with amazing vocals and acting made it all the better. I loved all of the leads, but especially...continued

We didn't expect a youth production to be as good as it was! We are true Rent-heads, having seen the show on Broadway at least six times, and at the Civic Theater twice. There were some standout talents in this production that are as good as any...continued

Fun show! Enthusiastic actors.

Only room for improvement is that the background musicians sometimes were louder than the actors.
