The Grand Opera House Broadway Series Presents "Ragtime: The Musical"

One of the most acclaimed musicals of modern times is back in a brand new touring production. Ragtime will appear at the Grand Opera House at 7:30 p.m. each night. The Grand turns back the clock to the start of the 20th century -- a time when anything was possible and ragtime music was king. For many, New York City was the land of opportunity. A poor Jewish immig\0x200Brant sells his "moving picture" books on the street. A wealthy Victorian couple welcomes a runaway into their home. A Harlem jazz pianist turns an issue of justice into a revolution. One by one, their personal journeys come alive as historic figures offer guidance and diversion -- among them escape artist Harry Houdini, auto tycoon Henry Ford, famed educator Booker T. Washington, and chorus girl Evelyn Nesbit. Together, their stories celebrate the struggle between tradition and independence ... black and white ... old and new ... all in pursuit of the American dream.

With its cast of vibrant characters, vivid sets and costumes, and Tony Award-winning book and score, Ragtime is a can't-miss theater event. Single tickets to the show are $68 in Area I, $58 in Area II, or $45 in the Boxes. For a complete schedule of upcoming performances, visit TheGrandMacon.com or call the box office at (478) 301-5470.
