ABOUT 48 STORIES:

The strength of a community lies in the stories we tell. Within the book you will discover 48 unique stories that reveal the collective creativity, perseverance, and dedication of the Atlantic City community. The 48 Blocks Atlantic City celebration is a common thread, but all the stories go deeper, expanding the narrative of transformation supported by engagement with the arts.

The publication of 48 Stories was made possible through Stockton University’s 2020 Initiative grant funding. All proceeds from the sale of the volume will go to support future editions and/or to 48 Blocks Atlantic City, a program of the Atlantic City Arts Foundation.

Ragtime: The Musical

It’s the turn of the century; everything is changing and anything is possible. Brimming with unforgettable melodies and a deeply compelling story of love and loss, Ragtime paints a powerful portrait of the American Dream that awakens the heart and captivates the soul. Set in the volatile melting pot of New York City, three distinct American stories are woven together—a determined Jewish immigrant, a daring Harlem musician and an upper-class mother, united by their courage, compassion and belief in a better tomorrow. Based on the novel by E. L. Doctorow, this triumphant must-see musical masterpiece is bursting with show-stopping splendor and unbridled passion. Prepare yourself to be swept away as Eagle Theatre lands you in a reinvented version of this boundless classic.
