UTA's Maverick Theatre Company presents RAGTIME

The University of Texas at Arlington’s Maverick Theatre Company presents RAGTIME, written by the award-winning composer/lyricist team of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, noted playwright Terrence McNally, and based on E.L. Doctorow’s distinguished novel. RAGTIME was the winner of the 1998 Tony Award for Best Score, Book and Orchestrations.

RAGTIME is set at the dawn of a new century in New York, everything is changing... and anything is possible. 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.

RAGTIME is presented in the UT Arlington Mainstage Theatre (Fine Arts Building, North Section, Room 174) located at 502 South Cooper Street on the UTA campus. Performances of RAGTIME are November 13, 14, 15, 16 at 7:30 pm, and November 17 at 2:00 pm 2019. Tickets are $12 for the general public and $10 for students/senior citizens/UTA faculty & staff. Groups of 10 or more can use the code RAGGRP for $10 tickets. For tickets please call 817-272-9595 or visit UTAtickets.com.

University of Texas at Arlington’s Department of Theatre Arts presents HARVEY

Playwright Mary Chase won the Pulitzer Prize for this delightful and insightful comedy about seeking happiness, identity, and acceptance of those who are different, and courtesy towards others in our everyday lives. This is the 75th anniversary of the play’s Broadway opening which ran for nearly five years. It has been revived frequently, made into a successful movie, and is performed regularly throughout the world.

Elwood P. Dowd insists on including his friend Harvey in all of his sister Veta’s social gatherings. Trouble is, Harvey is an imaginary six-and-a-half-foot-tall rabbit.

HARVEY features members of UTA’s Maverick Theatre Company and will be presented in the UT Arlington Mainstage Theatre (Fine Arts Building, North Section, Room 174 near the Gallery) located at 502 South Cooper Street on the UTA campus. Performances of HARVEY are October 9, 10, 11, 12 at 7:30 pm, and October 13 at 2:00 pm, 2019. Tickets are $10 for the general public and $8 for students/senior citizens/UTA faculty & staff.
