WORKING, the musical, paints a vivid portrait of the men and women that the world so often take for granted. Based on the award winning book of collected interviews by Studs Terkel, this 2012 revival of the original, Tony Award nominated 1978 production promises to deliver thought provoking, inspiring, challenging and highly entertaining stories from all walks of working life. With a riveting score by an outstanding team of songwriters including, Stephen Schwartz, James Taylor, Craig Carnelia, and Lin-Manuel Miranda and text created from Terkel's original interviews, WORKING delivers an honest and intriguing portrayal of 26 diverse careers. Join the students of The Canadian College of Performing Arts (CCPA) as they present WORKING, a production that is sure to become an audience favorite for years to come!
Audiences will relate to the varied songs and monologues of this working man's musical – if you haven't done the job then you know someone who has. "CCPA students will challenge the audience, and themselves, to think deeply because they will be very connected to these stories that are based in truth," comments Director Matthew Howe. At times grungy, at times comedic, but always hopeful, Working celebrates the daily grind.
