The Performing Arts School at bergenPAC Presents RENT – The Musical: Concert Version at Englewood Health

(Englewood, New Jersey-April 5, 2019) The Performing Arts School at bergenPAC is partnering with Englewood Health to present a free production of RENT – The Musical: Concert Version Performance in recognition of National Mental Health Awareness Month.

Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, RENT has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences. Set in the East Village of New York City, the show is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. 

Directed by Alexander Diaz, with musical direction by Ben Boecker, the performances feature local actors and will be held at Englewood Health, 350 Engle Street, Englewood on Friday, May 17 and Saturday, May 18 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, May 19 at 2 p.m.

Audiences will also get to hear from Englewood Health’s behavioral health experts about addiction and mental health issues facing our community today, the support and treatment resources available, and how everyone can work together to reduce the stigma associated with these important issues. 

As a designated stigma-free zone, Englewood Health is dedicated to educating the community and offering resources that help combat discrimination and negative perceptions toward individuals with mental illness. At the end of 2018, Englewood Health opened The Gregory P. Shadek Behavioral Care Center – with the primary location at 25 Rockwood Place in Englewood – featuring a dedicated care team of psychiatrists, licensed clinical social workers, an addiction specialist, and associated healthcare professionals. Collaborating with existing nonprofit and governmental agencies, the team is creating education/prevention programs rooted in promoting healthy lifestyles for children and adults in our local community.
