TDW_Working logoWORKING
The Drama Workshop
May 3-19
Glenmore Playhouse [Cheviot]

Directed & choreographed by Amy Waldfogle
Music direction by Allen Lindsey
Produced by Mark Waldfogle

Cast: Clare Hingsbergen, Kyndra Jefferies, Cathy Judge, Garret Liette, Jazzmann McMullen, Harold Murphy, Kevin Noll, Catherine Ross, Mitch Ruth, Helen Swartwout, Jim Swartwout & Elizabeth Taylor

The hopes, dreams, joys and concerns of the average working American are the focus of this unique, extraordinary musical. That the everyday lives of common men and women should be so compelling and moving will surprise and inspire anyone who has ever punched a time clock. The characters of WORKING are everybody you know! A different look at the seemingly humdrum lives of working people reveals a myriad variety of hopes, aspirations and dreams. Of course, to some, life is a Monday to Friday drudge, but to others there is great pride in their daily routine. A powerful contemporary score backed by a vital and dramatic book makes this a winner.
