Ragtime, based on E.L. Doctorow's best-selling novel, is a timeless tale of innocence lost and freedom won. It's an epic chronicle of American families at the turn of the century who find themselves in an era where everything is new and anything is possible.
Ragtime focuses on three remarkable families: one upper-middle class white, one socialist immigrant Jewish, and one Harlem black. As they embark on personal voyages of self-discovery, their lives become dramatically intertwined with one another, as well as with real-life historical figures including Henry Ford, Harry Houdini, J.P. Morgan and Booker T. Washington
Centre's Norton Center for the Arts is a regional performing arts facility, which annually brings to campus a series of important musical groups, Broadway shows, individual performances and other works from the performing arts. A complete series schedule and subscription information is available upon request.
