Composer: Stephen Flaherty, Lyricist: Lynn Ahrens, Playwright: Terrance McNally, Director/Choreographer: Kristen Caesar

“Ragtime: School Edition” is not only a powerful portrait of life in turn-of-the-century America, but a relevant tale for today. Written by the award-winning composer/lyricist team of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens ("Once On This Island," "Seussical," "Lucky Stiff"), noted playwright Terrence McNally, ("Kiss of the Spider Woman", "Master Class"), and based on E.L. Doctorow's distinguished novel, the musical intertwines the stories of three extraordinary families, as they confront history's timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and what it means to live in America.

Called by Time Magazine "A triumph for the stage," and by the International Herald Tribune "the best musical in twenty years," this acclaimed musical won 1998 Tony Awards for Best Score, Book and Orchestrations, and won both the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical and Best Score.

"Ragtime" is slated to make a Broadway Revival this fall!

**Though this musical will be performed by young performers, the producers would like to remind prospective audience members that the production contains adult themes and some mature language
