Unbelievable talent of the entire cast, and powerful voices, from the local actress, Kathleen Calvin (Mimi) seasoned artist, Joey Elrose (Roger). We loved the show!

Overall the performance was fine. It's a fun rock opera in a somewhat intimate theater. The dialog was censored. A few expletives were left in but many were removed. I didn't notice as a first-time attendee but my friends found it a bit...continued

The venue was great and the actors were all talented. The problem for me was that "Rent" was a real downer. Even at a bargain price, I should not have chosen such a depressing storyline.

I have attended numerous events at the Lawrence Welk Theater. I had never seen RENT and was not disappointed. The energy and talent of the cast was fabulous. Great show.

The "cheap seats" were 8 rows from the stage. Wonderful, intimate venue.

I was definitely impressed with the Welk Resort Theater. I took my mom for her birthday since we both really love Rent. I was a bit nervous since last time I saw Rent was up in LA at a big theater and was so far away from the stage it was almost...continued

I've been very active in musical theater as a director and choreographer earlier in my life. So I watch with different "hats" on. This production exceeded my expectations. Although the stage is small for this large cast, they managed it...continued

Great energy and Passion! 14 very talented actors on stage giving 120% to make every moment the best possible. Can't find anything negative to say except that it's difficult to understand every word as the energy is so high that the actors speak...continued

The players were very talented, but it had suggestive material. At Welk Theater this is unexpected. The music was clever, but very confusing and not very appealing. The story line was fragmented and did not give you a warm and fuzzy feeling, as...continued

Seen Rent many times, and this cast was as powerful and enthusiastic as any. Even the 'watered down' play was powerful.
Buy tickets, take your friends, be prepared to cry.

Great rendition...lots of energy. At times, words were lost in the rock music. Over all, very high rating for the play.
