Middletown Girl to Perform in 'Ragtime'

The Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts production opens May 4.

 

Students from 20 towns, including Sasha Brown of Middletown, will perform in "Ragtime The Musical" at the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts, starting on May 4.

"The diversity of the characters in Ragtime mirrors the diversity of our cast, crew and our students in general," said Eric Larivee, musical theater department director. "The story takes place in New York City and New Rochelle, NY, but the history is the history of Hartford and most American cities at the turn of the 20th century."

Based on a novel by E.L. Doctorow, "Ragtime" is about "wealth and poverty; freedom and prejudice; and home and despair as experienced by three extraordinary families," according to a news release from the academy.

Shows will be at 7:30 p.m. on May 4, 5, 10, 11, and 12 at the academy's Theater of the Performing Arts, 359 Washington St., Hartford.

For tickets, call 860-757-6388, Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets can also be purchased online at crec.org/theater.

Adult tickets are $15/$25 and students/seniors are $10/$15. Tickets are also available for the director's reception on opening night, May 4, at $40 per person. That price includes premium seating and a light dinner with wine at 6 p.m.
