HSPVA Theatre Ragtime

Winner of the 1998 Tony Awards for Best Book and Best Score
Reserved seating
HSPVA Denney Theatre

Book by Terrence McNally
Music by Stephen Flaherty
Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens

Ragtime is a sweeping musical portrait of early-twentieth-century America that tells the story of three families in pursuit of the American Dream. A unique and powerful portrait of America, the 2017 All-School Musical features a cast of 60 and a full orchestra.

HSPVA’s production of Ragtime is rated PG13. It is an honest examination of cultural tensions in the early 1900s and includes racial slurs and mature language that may not be appropriate for all audiences.
