A good evening of theatre. The pace of the show somewhat lagged. Coalhouse Walker had an amazing voice along with the Mother put forth a strong performance with great stage presence. The Orchestra was powerful and added to the dynamics of the...continued

I did not fully remember how much I loved "Ragtime" until I saw this production. Although it was much smaller than the production I saw at the Schubert theater about ten years ago, this version did it full justice. The perfomers who starred as...continued

Really good performance. Wonderful voices, but the music was too loud and drowned out the words many times. The costumes and staging were well done. We and our guests enjoyed it very much.
Hey Goldstar, they gave us box seats. We took our...continued

Great show. Kevin Yarbrough as Coalhouse Walker Jr. and Lina Gatineau-Elder as Sarah were exceptional. The rest of the cast was very good as well. This was my second time at the Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center and it won't be my last.

We saw it opening weekend and the live music at times overpowered the voices. I would like to catch all of the dialogue and all of the lyrics so I'll probably return to see it again!

I was happily surprised by the high quality performances, singing and staging. A rewarding evening. Some costumes could use better construction, fitting and appearance....

A first-class musical presentation. The essence of the era was movingly portrayed. What a pleasant surprise to find the performers' singing and acting skills worthy of any venue.

First time to the theatre and liked the easy and free parking. The building was architecturally intesting.
The stage had both strong and weak voices. Sometimes it was hard to hear due to poor miking. The play production flowed smoothly and the...continued

It was energetic and there were several good cast members. Some however weren't so great. As pretty as the girl is who sings Sarah, I couldn't pick out any of her tunes. She was woefully, painfully out of key the whole time. She was...continued

I was happily surprised ... I was expecting a small theatre show and there was alot of talent. The venue is beautiful, tickets great. Only down side - the audio was either to quiet or too soft. Other than that - wow what a great show.

Seats were in the last row of the balcony, but it was a very small venue, so that was no problem. For a local rep performance, pretty good, and my daughter loved the show, as well.

Surprisingly excellent performance in the heart of Simi Valley! A large and, for the most part, wonderful cast in a charming and comfortable small theater. Looking forward to going again!
