‘Working: A Musical’ shares lives of the people

“People aren’t built to switch on and off like water faucets,” says Ashley Brown (right) as Roberta Victor the prostitute, to Amy Hunsaker (left) as Grace Clements the millworker, in BGSU’s production of “Working: A Musical.”

BOWLING GREEN, O.—A musical based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book of interviews with American workers will be presented by the Bowling Green State University Department of Theatre and Film March 25-28.  Performances of “Working: A Musical” will be held in the Joe E. Brown Theatre, located in University Hall on the BGSU campus. Evening performances Thursday through Saturday will begin at 8 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday matinees will begin at 2 p.m.

“Working” explores the plight of the American employee, from the Monday-morning blues through TGIF. The original words of some uncommon, “common” men and women convey the hopes, dreams, joys and concerns of all in this unforgettable musical.

“Working: A Musical” is directed by theatre and film faculty member Geoff Stephenson and features a cast of students plus BGSU accounting and management information systems department chair Dr. David Stott. 

Single tickets are $6 for children under age 12, $5 for senior citizens age 65 and older, and $12 for students and other adults. Group rates are available. Call the theatre box office at 419-372-2719 for more information or to purchase tickets.
