The Dolphin Show, America’s largest student-produced musical, is proud to present our 76th annual production. This year’s show is Ragtime. Produced by Michael Kelleher and Prateek Singh, and directed by Michael Herwitz it opens January 26th in Northwestern’s Cahn Auditorium and runs until February 3rd.


A Mother in New Rochelle waves goodbye to her explorer husband, A Latvian immigrant arrives in New York’s Lower East Side, and a pianist in Harlem plays his heartbreak on the keys. When a black infant is found buried alive in a New Rochelle garden, these three seemingly different worlds begin to collide. To the tune of a strange new music hanging in the air, lives entwine as the 20th century dawns. Epic and heartfelt, Ragtime is a musical about change, justice and the hundreds of stories threaded into one American Life.
