Ragtime: The Musical

Music by Stephen Flaherty, Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, & Book by Terrence McNally
Directed by Michael Lluberes

Presented in Association with FIM Flint Repertory Theatre

JULY 11–20, 2024

The timeless musical masterpiece celebrates the soaring sounds and can-do spirit of America at the dawn of the last century.  To the syncopated rhythms of a hopeful new age, this unforgettable theatrical tapestry interweaves the delights of vaudeville, baseball, and old-time nickelodeons with the hurly-burly of labor rallies and racial unrest, tracign the lives of an enterprising Jewish immigrant, a courageous Harlem pianist, and a conflicted upper-class wife in a jubilant, inclusive tribute to the American Dream.  An epic tale, adapted from E. L. Doctorow’s sweeping novel, beautifully rendered on the Hangar’s intimate stage.

“A triumph for the stage.” –TIME magazine


Running Time:
Approximately 2 hours, 40 minutes, including one 10-minute intermission.


Note: Ragtime is recommended for mature upper-elementary-aged children and older. The show contains strong language, including the use of racial epithets, and simulated violence.
