Ragtime Opens April 15

Ragtime for webMark your calendars and be sure to attend a performance of Memorial Players’ spring musical, Ragtime, based on the novel by E. L. Doctorow. This musical sings of the American dream, full of love, hope, possibilities, adventure, friendship, despair and redemption.

The cast of just over 50 comes from across the Baltimore region, with seasoned actors who have returned year after year and many new faces.

Though this is Director Bill Kamberger’s first production with Memorial Players, he is well known in the theater community. He was named Baltimore’s Best Stage Director by the City Paper in 2003, and by Baltimore Broadway World in 2015.

The show opens on April 15th at 7:30 pm, when the Players will transform Memorial Episcopal Church into New Rochelle, Harlem, and the Lower East Side at the turn into the 20th century.

Performances will be held for two weekends, with Friday & Saturday evening shows at 7:30 pm, and Sunday matinees at 3:30 pm.

Make a night of it by attending one of the pre-show receptions, hosted at a neighborhood home with fine food and drink. It’s a wonderful way to support Memorial Players, and the only way to get reserved seating. Purchase your tickets now for this receptions by clicking the date.
