OCCC Cultural Programs presents the Broadway touring production of Ragtime: The Musical on Sunday, December 13, 2015 at 7:30 PM in the Visual and Performing Arts Center Theater.

This Tony award-winning musical portrait of early 20th-century America is based on E.L. Doctorow’s distinguished novel, Ragtime, which tells the story of three families in the pursuit of the American Dream. The stories of an upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician unfold - all three are united by their desire and belief in a brighter tomorrow. Their compelling stories are set to theatre's richest and most glorious Tony Award®-winning score by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens. Winning Tony Awards® for Best Book and Best Musical Score, this 13 time Tony Award® nominated musical is a timeless celebration of life - what it could and should be!

This all-new touring production is directed and choreographed by Marcia Milgrom Dodge and produced by the team that most recently brought theatre-goers The Addams Family, Spamalot, Rock of Ages and The Color Purple.

“Explosive and thrilling! Theater-shaking intensity…a vibrant production. RAGTIME is nothing short of a masterpiece” said Bloomberg News. Variety calls it “Simply stunning in every detail.”
