About the Show: ?This examination of 26 people from all walks of life proves that it’s more than just a job for the average working American.  The musical is based on the 1974 Studs Terkel book Working:  People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do.  The book includes interviews with people from different regions and occupations.  The idea for the musical was born after Stephen Schwartz read Terkel’s book and felt compelled to explore the voices of the men and women who comprise the fabric of America.

About our production:  Our production team felt this was the perfect time to present this particular musical to our patrons, as it is a celebration of many of the essential workers of our nation.  In addition, the nature of the show – it is performed in vignettes that include songs (solos and ensemble numbers) and monologues – lent itself to a virtual production format.  The director, Ben Simpson, and music director, Brian Kuhn, selected a dynamic and diverse cast from across Southern Maryland that includes multiple ethnicities, gender identifications, and ages.  Excitement has been building as Technical Director Jason Klonkowski has guided the recording of songs and filming of scenes, both at the theater and at a variety of locations in the area.
