Based on the novel “Ragtime” by E. L. Doctorow

At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing… and anything is possible. In the melting-pot of New York City, a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant, and a daring young Harlem musician are brought together by the promise of the future. Filled with compassion, courage, and America’s great historical figures, Ragtime is an inspirational musical that displays the true portrait of America.

This show contains mature themes, mild violence, and strong language including racial slurs. We encourage you to use your judgment based on your child’s age and maturity level.
