Ragtime The Musical at Centre College's Norton Center
At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing…and anything is possible. Ragtime returns in this all-new touring production directed and choreographed by Marcia Milgrom Dodge and produced by the team that most recently brought you The Addams Family, Spamalot, Rock of Ages and The Color Purple. The stories of an upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant, and a daring young Harlem musician unfold – set in turn-of-the-century New York. All three are united by their desire and belief in a brighter tomorrow. Their compelling naratives 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!
Centre College’s Norton Center for the Arts is pleased to announce that Danville native Ariston Trace Hill has been cast in the role of Young Coalhouse in the upcoming Danville engagement of the 2015/2016 National Tour RAGTIME at the Norton Center for the Arts.
