With famous characters, brilliant costumes and haunting music, Ragtime creates a dazzling diorama of turn-of-the-century New York, teeming with the raw energy of a still-young nation. Based on E.L. Doctorow's acclaimed novel, this melting pot drama is told from the perspective of three ethnically diverse families whose fates unexpectedly intertwine. Real-life figures like Harry Houdini, Booker T. Washington, Henry Ford and Emma Goldman make surprising and often illuminating cameo appearances throughout this "triumph for the stage" (Time magazine). With music and lyrics by the Tony Award-winning team of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, the production boasts a Tony Award-winning book by Terrence McNally and such memorable songs as "Getting Ready Rag," "Wheels of a Dream," "Till We Reach That Day" and "Make Them Hear You." Now 3-D Theatricals brings a new production to Plummer Auditorium. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“This is better than John Philip Sousa played on massed kazoos with free ice cream sodas.” —New York Post
Oil City Symphony comes to Fullerton’s Plummer Auditorium. The show stars its authors and original New York cast members Mike Craver and Mary Murfitt (626 performances Off-Broadway). The story concerns four famous graduates of Oil City High School, who return to pay a very humorous homage to a retiring teacher. Each must play several instruments on stage as well as sing and act. The music ranges from “The Hokey Pokey” to the “Anvil Chorus” and also includes “Stars and Stripes Forever”, “1812 Overture”, and “Count Your Blessings” , plus other sentimental favorites and rock standards. The show is known for its humor and multi-talented performers.
