Middlebury College Musical Theatre presents



Based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book, Working paints a vivid portrait of the people the world so often takes for granted the schoolteacher, the phone operator, the waitress, the millworker, the mason and the housewife, just to name a few. It’s about the hopes, dreams, joys and concerns of the average working American. The key is how people’s relationships to their work ultimately reveal key aspects of their humanity, regardless of the trappings of the job itself.

The show, set in contemporary America, contains timeless truths. Working allows the audience to get a rare glimpse of the actors and technicians, working to put on a show. This raw adaptation only enhances the realistic and relatable nature of the subject matter. Nominated for six Tony Awards, Working features songs by Tony Award-winning Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as favorites by Stephen Schwartz, Craig Carnelia and James Taylor.
