This Thursday evening, May 20th, Village Productions/Tri-County Performing Arts Center will be leading a Community Outreach Program to provide education and encourage discussion about the social and historical themes in the musical production, RAGTIME. It will take place from 7-8 pm at Christ Episcopal Church at 316 E. High Street, Pottstown.
The discussion will be led by the Director of RAGTIME, Neal Newman, and the Music Director, Deborah Stimson-Snow (who is also the Artistic Director for the Tri-PAC).
RAGTIME is based on the award-winning E.L. Doctorow novel of the same name, and is being performed at the Tri-PAC on Thursdays through Sundays, June 3rd through 20th.
The public is also welcome to access a complimentary STUDY GUIDE about the work, which can be used by individuals or groups before or after the program to provide information about the plot and social and historical issues in RAGTIME, which revolve around immigration, culture clashes, and the hopes and dreams of the featured characters. The STUDY GUIDE can be downloaded directly from the Tri-PAC website here.
