RAGTIME is an epic musical that paints a nostalgic and powerful portrait of life in turn of the century America. Three distinct stories intertwine to poignantly illustrate history’s timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and love and hate. With a score that is as diverse as the melting pot of America, RAGTIME – draws upon traditional Jewish folk sounds to color the haunting music of the European immigrants, • borrows from Vaudevillian styles to capture the spectacle of Anglo-American upper-middle-class society, and utilizes Joplin and Jazz to invoke the enlivened spirit and rhythms of African-American, working class Harlem.

CPCC Theatre Announces 2016/17 Season of Plays and Musicals
Join CPCC Theatre for another exciting season of the best in theatre at a price the entire family can afford.
“1776: The Musical,” September 23 – October 2, Pease Auditorium
It’s the summer of 1776, and the nation is ready to declare independence, if only our founding fathers can agree to do it! “1776” follows John Adams of Massachusetts, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania, and Richard Henry Lee and Thomas Jefferson of Virginia as they attempt to convince the members of the second Continental Congress to vote for independence from the shackles of the British monarchy by signing the Declaration of Independence. Join us for this funny, insightful and compelling drama, which features a striking score and legendary book.
“Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice,” October 28 – November 6, Pease Auditorium
Watch as all the wit and romance of Jane Austen’s classic 1813 novel comes to life in this refreshingly fast-paced and engaging new adaptation by Jon Jory. When the independent-minded Elizabeth meets the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy, she is determined not to let her feelings triumph over her own good sense. But the truth turns out to be slipperier than it seems. In a society where subtle snubs and deceit proliferate, is it possible for Elizabeth and Darcy to look beyond his pride and her prejudice to make the best match of all?
“Ragtime: The Musical,” February 10 – 19, Dale F. Halton Theater
The Tony Award winning musical “Ragtime” presents a sweeping portrait of early 20th century America, telling the story of three families in pursuit of the American Dream. At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing, and anything is possible. Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, three distinctly American individuals – a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician – are woven together to show how they are united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future. Based on the novel by E.L. Doctrow.
“August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” March 31 – April 9, Pease Auditorium
It’s 1927 in a rundown studio in Chicago. Ma Rainey, the Mother of the Blues, is recording new sides of old favorites. During a tense recording session in Chicago’s South Side, August Wilson’s “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” exposes the exploitation of African-American musicians in the white-dominated commercial music industry. “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the winner of the 1985 Tony Award for Best Play, depicts the psychological consequences of African-American musicians’ struggles for economic an artistic self-determination in the face of racism and a shifting marketplace.
