St. Michael’s University School presents this musical portrait of early twentieth-century America telling the story of three families in the pursuit of the American Dream. Ragtime is set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York where three distinctly American tales are woven together and united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future. Together they confront history's timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair.
