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!
This presentation is Ragtime Version 2, which is better suited for on intimate stage yet still includes all the musical numbers as Ragtime.
Announcement - IU's Another Round Canceled
Unfortunately, due to the close of our Clay Terrance Playhouse and our inability to find a suitable venue, we will not be able to host IU's Another Round on March 2nd and 3rd.
Announcement about our Clay Terrace Playhouse
Carmel Community Players is in the middle of our 24th season. For the last eight plus years, we have provided "quality entertainment up close " at Clay Terrace and have performed all our shows there.
Over that time, Clay Terrace has been a friend to CCP by providing a lease at a fraction of market value. Last week, Clay Terrace informed us they are no longer able to able to continue that arrangement. While the timing of this announcement was sudden, it was not totally unexpected. We knew that one day the competitive demand for space in Clay Terrace would force us to move our playhouse.
That day is now.
The production of American Buffalo which runs two weekends, February 23rd to March 3rd, will be our last show at the Playhouse at Clay Terrace. This is a special production running only two weekends. This show is not part of our 2017-18 season ticket package. We will provide additional information on this show in subsequent emails.
The shows will go on!
Over our history, Carmel Community Players have staged performances at many different venues in the Carmel area. We will go back to that approach while we search for a permanent home.
We are now in the process of securing venues for the remaining shows in our 2017-18 season (Ragtime, Is He Dead?, and Kitchen Witches) and are beginning the process of evaluating our long-term options.
We have identified available locations for the remainder of this season’s shows but have not finalized contracts for renting the theaters. We will announce them in the coming days.
Thank you again for your continued support!
