'Ragtime' opens May 25 at Laurel Mill Playhouse

May 22, 2012

Learn about life in turn-of-the-century America and enjoy many musical styles at "Ragtime," opening Friday, May 25 at 8 p.m. at Laurel Mill Playhouse, 508 Main St.

This musical intertwines the stories of three extraordinary families, as they confront history's timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and what it means to live in America. The musical score draws on Ragtime rhythms of Harlem and Tin Pan Alley to the klezmer of the Lower East Side, from bold brass band marches to delicate waltzes, from up-tempo banjo tunes to period parlor songs and expansive anthems.

Performances run through June 17, with Friday and Saturday shows at 8 p.m. and Sunday performances June 10 and 17 at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $18 for general admission. Admission for students (18 and under), active duty military and seniors (65 and over) is $15.

For reservations, call 301-617-9906 and press 2. For information, go to laurelmillplayhouse.org.
