— Direct from a critically-acclaimed run at the Hope Mill Theatre, RAGS The Musical tells the heartwarming and powerful tale of a group of Jewish immigrants as they arrive to start a new life in America.
Fresh from Ellis Island, a young mother and her son search for a new life and a sense of home as the 20th century beckons.
It is a story of both hope and disappointment, of power and greed, of strength and love, combined with memorable music. With a ravishing score by the songwriters of Wicked and Annie and the book-writer of Fiddler on the Roof, this is a sweeping saga of America’s immigrant past.
“…an unforgettable, unique and vibrant treat” Jewish Telegraph
