EVERYONE EVERYWHERE,

MOVING TO THE RAGTIME!

RAGTIME makes its much anticipated Australian Premiere this November at Arts Centre Melbourne for 11 performances only.

We’re thrilled to announce internationally renowned tenor Alexander Lewis joins the cast in the role of Tateh. Georgina Hopson, the 2017 winner of the Rob Guest Endowment will play the role of Mother. They join a stellar cast including Kurt Kansley, Chloe Zuel, Adam Murphy,

John O’May, John McTernan and Anton Berezin. Our all Australian company is joined onstage by our 20 piece Production Company Orchestra.

The winner of the 1998 Tony Awards for Best Score, Book and Orchestrations, and both the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical and Best Score, Ragtime is filled with pageantry, emotion and hope, bursting onto the stage like no other musical.

Ragtime draws upon many musical styles: the ragtime rhythms of Harlem and Tin Pan Alley, the klezmer of the Lower East Side, brass band marches and delicate waltzes, from up-tempo banjo tunes and expansive anthems. A truly unique and powerful portrait of America, Ragtime is sure to inspire.

A powerful portrait of the birth of the American nation, RAGTIME is filled with pageantry, emotion and optimism. A musical not to be missed.
