Ragtime

When: Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through Feb. 26 2012

Kent State University’s School of Theatre and Dance will continue its 2011/2012 production season with Ragtime, based on the novel written by E. L. Doctorow and directed by Eric van Baars. Ragtime is a story about life during Progressive-era America at the beginning of the 20th century. The show illustrates the issues of the time- from immigration, racism and politics to industrialization and social chaos- through the intermingling of characters and familiar historical figures. Harry Houdini, Booker T. Washington and Henry Ford connect with the story’s characters in unpredictable settings to add an unusual literary component.

Price: $8 to $16
