Posted on 11/19/2019 3:12:44 PM

Scene from “Rent”The Indiana community and IUP faculty, students, and staff are invited to meet cast members from the Broadway musical Rent in a Q&A session immediately following the company’s 7:00 p.m. performance in Fisher Auditorium on Thursday, November 21. The Q&A will take place on the second floor of the auditorium on the Oak Grove side of the building in the Mezzanine Lobby.

The actors participating in the Rent Q&A are Lexi Greene, who plays Mrs. Cohen/Mark’s mom; Shafiq Hicks as Collins; Aiyana Smash as Mimi Marquez; and Kelsee Sweigard, who plays Maureen Johnson. More on these terrific actors can be found on the Rent official website.

Over the past several years, this has proven to be a popular outreach that gives anyone interested in theater a great opportunity to ask questions and talk with individuals who are in the business and performing as professional actors. This event is presented free of charge by the Lively Arts.

Tickets for Rent are available for purchase online through the Lively Arts website or by calling the ticket hotline at 724-357-1313. They can also be purchased at the Performing Arts Center Ticket Office in Fisher Auditorium. Any seats remaining will be sold at the door starting one hour prior to the performance.

The ticket hotline and ticket office in Fisher Auditorium are open weekdays from noon to 5:00 p.m. For more information on this and other events as well as group tickets within the Lively Arts, call 724-357-2787 (ARTS) or email

The Ovations series is funded, in part, by donations through the Premiere Club, business sponsorships, grants, and the IUP Student Cooperative Association. The Lively Arts, a program of the College of Fine Arts, presents nearly 200 performances, programs, and exhibits annually.
