We’re excited to share these practice tracks for Ragtime (music by Stephen Flaherty, lyrics by Lynn Ahrens). Each song includes individual rehearsal tracks for each role and vocal part, as well as piano accompaniment tracks that you can use to practice on your own or use in rehearsal in a pinch. Hopefully you find them useful for your production!
