SUNY Sullivan Presents Ragtime, the Musical

SUNY Sullivan’s “epic” theatre season continues with the presentation of the Tony-Award-winning musical, Ragtime. The show will run Thursdays through Sundays, April 14 through April 24 at the college’s Seelig Theater.

Based on the novel by E.L. Doctorow, Ragtime weaves together the tales of three diverse groups — white upper-class suburbanites, African Americans and Eastern Europeans — all in pursuit of the American dream in turn-of-the-20th-century New York. Their challenges and triumphs play out on-stage through the lives of a wealthy white couple, an African American ragtime musician and a Jewish immigrant father.

The cast is comprised of SUNY Sullivan students, staff and faculty and community members. The musical is being produced by Jessica Barkl, Assistant Professor of Theater and Speech at SUNY Sullivan. Thursday. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 8:00 pm; Sunday performances begin at 2:00 p.m. The suggested donation for admission is $10.
