The historic Scranton Iron Furnaces in the heart of Downtown Scranton will provide a stunning backdrop and add a unique atmosphere for the Scranton Shakespeare Festival's 10th anniversary summer season. Enjoy free outdoor performances throughout the summer!

Ragtime, the NEPA Professional Premier of the Broadway Musical, is based on the E.L. Doctorow novel of the same name. It's a captivating story representing the American experience at the turn of the 20th century. Following three diverse families in pursuit of the American dream in the volatile “melting pot” of New York in the 1900s, Ragtime faces the cultural contradictions built into the fabric of American reality: wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair.
