Ragtime in Concert

The stories of three American families intertwine against the backdrop of a towering slate of historical figures. Together, through a dazzling array of musical styles from the era, they weave a stunning tapestry that reveals both the prejudice and promise of the American experience. Highland Park Players will reinvent this classic into a dazzling staged-concert featuring an expansive choir, Chicago’s best theatrical talent and a professional 27-piece orchestra that will allow you to experience this magnificent story and music like never before!

The Prom

After a scathing review from the New York Times closes their latest show on opening night, a couple of brassy Broadway performers embark on a mission to change the world and in the process, rehabilitate their image. Their selected cause is a teenager from a small Indiana town whose prom was canceled by the P.T.A. due to her desire to attend with her girlfriend. The Prom is a funny, smart, big-hearted musical about big Broadway stars, a small town, and a love that unites them all.
