HICKORY, N.C. — Lenoir-Rhyne University’s Playmakers and the music program will present Ragtime, a play based on the novel by E. L. Doctorow, February 19 through 22 at 7:30 P.M. in PE Monroe Auditorium.
Doctorow’s 1975 novel, Ragtime captures the spirit of America in the era between the turn of the century and the First World War. The story opens in 1906 in New Rochelle, New York, at the home of an affluent American family. When the family patriarch sets sail for the North Pole, certain “the world will stay the same”, his family becomes the center of changes connecting New Rochelle, Harlem and the Lower East Side. This Tony Award winning musical captures a changing time and the magic of transformation, as the line between fantasy and historical fact, between real and imaginary characters, disappear.
