SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Actors all over the world are congregating in Savannah to put on a show for the ages.

The Savannah Summer Theatre Institute is a four-week program in which high schoolers put on a Broadway quality show from scratch.

This summer, "Rent" will be gracing the stage at Savannah Country Day School for six performances.

"Every year we try and bring in a series of guest speakers just to work with the cast. So, this year we have Will Chase, who has been seen on Smash most recently, that is where most people know him from, but he is a big Broadway star. He was actually the last person to play Roger in Rent on Broadway," said Ben Wolfe, Savannah Summer Theatre Institute.

Rent opens at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Tickets are available online. For more information, visit http://savannahsummertheatre.com/?load=flash.
