Theatre Elision presents Ragtime Women, an original musical telling the story of four women in the early 1900s who defied conventional female expectations of the time to become successful musicians, performers and composers. It is a story of determination, and the importance of passion and commitment when pursuing your dreams. But it is also the story of the challenges women faced then, and still do today, when seeking to break free of societal norms and expectations. It reminds us that throughout history women have defied convention and made great sacrifices to pursue their dreams. Ragtime Women uses the original compositions of the characters to the tell their story, along with other music from the period.
