Written by the award-winning composer/lyricist team of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens (Once on This Island, Seussical and Lucky Stiff), noted playwright Terrence McNally, and based on E.L. Doctorow's distinguished novel, Ragtime is the winner of the 1998 Tony Awards for Best Score, Book and Orchestrations, and both the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical and Best Score. Called by TIME Magazine "A triumph for the stage,"and by the International Herald Tribune "the best musical in twenty years," this acclaimed musical is filled with pageantry, emotion and hope, bursting onto the stage like no other musical.

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 tales are woven together – that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician – united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future. Together, they confront history's timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and what it means to live in America.

The Tony-winning score is just as diverse as the melting pot of America itself, drawing upon many musical styles, from the ragtime rhythms of Harlem and Tin Pan Alley to the klezmer of the Lower East Side, from bold brass band marches to delicate waltzes, from up-tempo banjo tunes to period parlor songs and expansive anthems. A truly unique and powerful portrait of America, Ragtime is sure to inspire actors and audiences alike!


FOR MUSICALS: You should come to auditions prepared to sing one song, typically a verse & chorus (16 to 32 bars) from a Broadway show that will highlight your vocal strengths (remember to bring music for the accompanist to play on the piano). You should also be prepared to dance in case the choreographer will want to test your abilities (wear comfortable clothes and appropriate shoes).

Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
The beautiful vaudeville performer was made famous for the murder of her high profile lover by her rich husband. In the show, her character is invariably played, and arguably written to be, very one-dimensional, goofy, gorgeous, a bombshell young actress and model.

Tateh\'s daughter, Little Girl is a young Eastern European immigrant in a new home. She is quite stoic and unusually mature for her age.

Role # 14 - Willie Conklin Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
A racist volunteer fireman who destroys Coalhouse\'s car, Conklin is the spark that ignites Coalhouse\'s mini revolution. He is the very epitome of racial intolerance. His lack of intelligence and utterly palpable displays of racial superiority echo the deep divisions that existed between the various races, creeds, and ethnicities within the country both at the time of the show and nowadays. This character is brash, brazen, abrasive, offensive, and just plain ugly. He's not a guy with whom anyone can empathize.
