Ragtime the Musical – TYA Senior Company Spring

Eligible Grades: 9-12, TYA Alums, and College Students

Book by Terrence McNally
Music by Stephen Flaherty
Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Based on the novel, Ragtime by E.L. Doctorow

A sweeping musical epic follows three distinctly different families at the turn of the twentieth century all in pursuit of the American Dream. In the volatile melting pot of early-twentieth-century New York, the tales of these three families are woven together. Together, they confront history’s timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair… and what it means to live in America.

Directed by Stephanie Lynn Williams

Music Direction by Tiffany Underwood Holmes
