ACT’s 10th year kicks off with a bang with our winter production of Ragtime. At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing, and anything is possible. Set in the melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, three distinctly American tales are woven together, united by their 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.

Don’t miss this uniquely American story, brought to life by a cast of local powerhouse actors.

Performances February 19th – 29th, 2020
