University Theatre Presents the Musical "Working"
02/17/2004

Frostburg State’s University Theatre will present the musical “Working” in the Drama Theatre of the Performing Arts Center on March 5, 6, 11, 12, and 13 at 8 p.m. Matinee performances will be held on March 6 and 13 at 2 p.m.

“Working” is a musical that is based on Studs Terkel’s 1972 best-selling book of interviews with ordinary American workers. The musical is a celebration of the “anonymous many” whose lives touch ours everyday without our realizing it. Created by Stephen Schwartz (“Godspell”) and filled with an impressive variety of songs by five additional composers, including James Taylor and Mary Rodgers, the story reflects the grievances, hopes and dreams of the unsung heroes and heroines of the American workforce. Variously influenced by pop, folk, rock, blues and country music, songs like “Millwork,” “Brother Trucker,” “Just A Housewife,” “Neat to Be A Newsboy” and “If I Could’ve Been,” beautifully capture the “poetry of the everyday” and admirably honor the ability of the human spirit to transcend even the most demeaning job. “Working” has remained one of the most popular and most frequently produced musicals its Broadway opening in 1978.

Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for the general public. Ask about the theatre’s “work force” rates. For reservations and information call 301-687-7462, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
