The Court Theatre’s revised Ryman Healthcare 2022 Season will feature a surprise new show as the previously planned RENT (cancelled in 2020 due to Covid-19) replaces the Carole King biopic Beautiful as the summer musical. RENT follows a group of artists struggling and striving to fulfil their dreams in New York City.

PUTTING THE SPOTLIGHT ON CONSENT CONVERSATIONS
Part confession, part documentary, part open conversation, YES YES YES is a theatre show created for young adults that explores the knotty and necessary topics of healthy relationships, desire and consent.
