The Heights Players open their second show of the 2006 – 2007 season Saturday (10/6) with the Tony Award winning musical Ragtime. Based on a novel by E.L. Doctrow, with book and score by Terrence McNally, Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, the show traces the lives of three turn of the century ethnic groups – WASPs, Jews and African-Americans.
Fresh from his tour-de-force performance in The Dinner Party, Heights Players president Ed Healy takes the director's chair with assistance from musical director Ethan Wagner and choreographer/costumer Gina Healy and a large ensemble cast.
Performances take place Fridays and Saturdays at 8PM and Sundays at 2PM from October 6 – 21 at the Heights Players Theater, 26 Willow Place. Tickets may be purchased via the group's website or by calling (718) 237-2752.
