Ragtime the Musical

Join us for a special showing of Ragtime the Musical at the Hanover Theatre. Ragtime paints a picture of American life that weaves together the stories of three separate and very different families: upper class white Protestant family, African-American family, and poor European migrants who arrive at Ellis Island looking for a better life. One of the most acclaimed musicals of modern times and winner of four Tony Awards! Bus will leave University Crossing at 11:30a.m.
