Just a reminder that the video clip for the audition dance piece is up on the Facebook page that was created by Epsom Girls' Grammar School. You will also not find all music for the audition on there as well.

Epsom Girls Grammar School and Auckland Grammar School are delighted to announce that next years combined production will be "Ragtime - The Musical."

 Directed by Anna Richardson, with Musical Direction by Peter Thomas and Choreography by Rebekkah Schoonbeek Berridge.

 Based on the novel of the same name by E.L. Doctrow, Ragtime is a compelling epic tracking three diverse families in pursuit of the American dream in the volatile “melting pot” of turn-of-the-century New York. Over the course of the show, the worlds of a wealthy white couple, a Jewish immigrant father and his motherless daughter, and an African American ragtime musician intertwine. Together, they discover the surprising interconnections of the human heart, the limitations of justice and the unsettling consequences when dreams are permanently deferred. This musical captures the beats of the American experience: the marches, the cakewalks and - of course, the ragtime.

 Auditions will be held on the 7th and 8th of December, watch out on Grammarnet, the Epsom Girls Grammar Website and on Facebook for more details
