From the lives of “ordinary” working people comes a musical that is anything BUT ordinary! Adapted from Studs Terkel’s magnificent oral history, this newly updated “Working” paints a vivid portrait of the men and women the world so often takes for granted: the mill worker, cubicle worker, waitress, fireman, housewife, delivery driver and the schoolteacher—just to name a few. In their own words, these individuals reveal the joys, heartaches, hopes and dreams of the average working American. With a universal message and uplifting score, “Working” celebrates everyday people in a truly genuine, funny and touching way.

“Winningly reimagined…fully engaging.” – Chicago Sun-Times

Auditions: May 18 & 19 • 6:30 p.m., Studio Theatre (open to the community)
