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

On November 13, 2005, you will be entertained by Mr. Robert Salisbury who will be performing a concert for you on the Wurlitzer Organ at Plummer Auditorium. During this concert you will hear music from the 40’s and 50’s. In addition, you will experience the viewing of the silent movie “Wings” starring Clara Bow. Tom will accompany the movie live so you can enjoy this classic movie as it was originally shown back in 1927. You will experience one of the finest Wurlitzer Organ’s in California at the Plummer Auditorium.
Two young men fall in love for the same same girl. After US enters WWi, both join the Air Corps and become ace. They remain friends, but the relation to the girl threatens their friendship.
The very first Oscar Winning film, “Wings” stars Clara Bow, “Buddy” Rogers, Richard Arlen and featuring a new soon to be star, Gary Cooper! It is the only silent film to be bestowed the Best Picture honor. This movie has the finest World War I aerial war footage ever shown! It is so exciting to watch!
About Robert Salisbury: Bob started out playing the theatre organ at age 13. He would go to the Casino on Avalon and play the Page pipe organ on a nightly basis before the movie. In 1997, Bob’s talents gained wider recognition when the American Theatre Organ Society awarded him first place in their respected Hobbyist Competition for the United States. He recently completed recording work for Tokyo Sea, a new Disney theme park in Japan and he has recorded music for Touched By An Angel.
