FCT present the Scottish premiere of Ragtime.
FCT’s 2009 Festival Fringe production is “Ragtime” and will be directed by Andrew Dyer.
Based on the 1975 novel by E. L. Doctorow and set in America at the turn of the century, Ragtime tells the story of three groups who are represented by Coalhouse Walker Jr., a Harlem musician; Mother, the matriarch of a WASP family in New Rochelle, NY; and Tateh, a Latvian Jewish immigrant.
This epic musical is filled by these and many other inspirational characters as well as incredible, show-stopping songs in the form of marches, cakewalks, gospel and ragtime.
