Central Coast Locals Bring the Show Home as the Live Band in Hit Musical Rent
Andrew is joined by Cypress Bartlett (drums), Konrad Ball (bass), Nathan Barraclough (guitar) and Assistant Musical Director Dylan Pollard, who also hail from the Central Coast. Completing the band is Ben Fink from Sydney. The group have formed a tight bond since coming together last year during COVID to play online and live concerts as ‘The Isolationists’.
“I am so grateful and excited to now be able to play with these generous and talented fellows in RENT, doubly excited we got to do it at the Sydney Opera House and now here at home on the Coast at The Art House. They have quite simply become family.” Worboys says.
RENT will be the latest hit musical to visit The Art House after 2019’s In the Heights and HAIR. As the only other venue to receive the show from The Sydney Opera House, it marks a wonderful celebration of The Art House’s dedication to becoming a strong addition to capitol city touring productions. To host local performers as part of the cast makes it an extra special occasion.
Drummer Cypress Bartlett said "The enjoyment of being able to perform RENT to Central Coast audiences with a band akin to family is second to none. The emotions of gratitude that there are quality performance spaces like The Art House being developed and catered for on the coast fill me with hope for the future.”
Marking the 25th anniversary of the original production that spent 12 years on Broadway, this version is attracting rave reviews at its opening in Sydney. The show is set in New York City 1991 and follows a group of young artists as they navigate neighborhood gentrification, the HIV/AIDS epidemic, and the trials and tribulations of love and belonging.
