Walnut Hills High School’s Theatre Department
Presents Ragtime!
At the dawn of the 20th century, everything is changing... and anything is possible. Set in the volatile
melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, three distinctly American tales are woven together that of a
stifled upper class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician 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, and what it means to live
in America.
