RAGTIME
RAGTIME, the Musical

Book by  Terrence McNally
Music by  Stephen Flaherty
Lyrics by  Lynn Ahrens
Based on the novel, Ragtime, by E.L. Doctorow

Called by Time Magazine "A triumph for the stage," and by the International Herald Tribune "the best musical in twenty years," this acclaimed musical won 1998 Tony Awards for Best Score, Book and Orchestrations, and won both the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical and Best Score.

RAGTIME is not only a powerful portrait of life in turn-of-the-century America, but a relevant tale for today.

Written by the award-winning composer/lyricist team of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, noted playwright Terrence McNally, and based on E.L. Doctorow's distinguished novel, the musical intertwines the stories of three extraordinary families, as they confront history's timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and what it means to live in America.

The Tony-winning score by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty is just as diverse as the melting pot of America itself. It draws upon many musical styles from the ragtime rhythms of Harlem and Tin Pan Alley to the klezmer of the Lower East Side, from bold brass band marches to delicate waltzes, from up-tempo banjo tunes to period parlor songs and expansive anthems.

Featured are such show stopping songs as "Getting Ready Rag," "Your Daddy's Son," "Wheels of a Dream," "Till We Reach That Day," "Back To Before," and "Make Them Hear You."

YMTC (Youth Musical Theater Company) is a non-profit, Berkeley-based company which produces professional caliber musical theater while providing exceptional theater training to students from the 7th grade through university level.  

We bring together the Bay Area's most talented and dedicated young singer/actors with professional directors, designers, and musicians to create theater that takes on challenging and sophisticated musical and dramatic themes, and that is always accompanied by a full, live orchestra.

Q&A

Question: Is there a ticket price for a student who is just over 22? I have a couple of student friends who are 23 or 24 and want to attend, but we are confused by the ticket pricing and why youth is 22 and under.
Answer: In a time when people of all ages can be Students, our 'Youth' pricing is aimed at making theater affordable for teens and those who are in the early years of college. This is also the age range of our performers and potential auditioners.
