RAGTIME SCHOOL EDITION

ANDOVER HIGH SCHOOL


ANDOVER HIGH SCHOOL - BLOOMFIELD HILLS, MI
11/15-11/18/12


RAGTIME SCHOOL EDITION has become not only a favorite of schools across the country, but a valuable teaching tool with which educators can discuss such issues as class and prejudice, social conditions, immigration and the history of America itself. In this version, vocals are slightly rearranged for student voices.

RAGTIME 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 and 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,"
