Working – A Musical Opens Feb 9th
Working is a high-energy and exuberant musical. Seven talented actors sing, dance, and change scenery while sharing the stories of 26 workers. Delores hears “Hey, you’re terrific. How come you’re just a waitress?”. Mike, an Ironworker shares “One time this college boy saw a book in my back pocket, and asked, “You read?” Real people, real stories. Lots of heart.
Dani Corbishley, the talented choreographer and director of WORKING, explains that this is an every-human play. “As such, the cast will be presented as genderless humans until such time as they become the characters within the show. The show is “fluid”, dance and blocking will intermix during both song and dialogue portions. Characters morph, taking their props and costume pieces from their onstage lockers, dismantling a scene then assembling the next. As one worker ends their story, another begins. Seven talented actors never leave the set, which is made up entirely of used construction materials you would see at a worksite.
Music with a live group including guitar and keyboard, under the direction of Brent McLaren, includes songs by James Taylor and Lin-Manual Miranda.
WORKING, with some mature content, is sure to set your heart pumping and your feet stomping!
