MOUNT UNION PLAYERS TO PRESENT 'WORKING'

April 27, 2010

ALLIANCE, Ohio - Taking an uncommon look at the everyday lives of "common" men and women, the Mount Union College Players will present Working February 16-17 and 22-24 at 8 p.m. and February 18 at 2 p.m. in Rodman Playhouse.

The musical, which is based on Stud Terkel's best-selling book of interviews with American workers, paints a vivid portrait of the extraordinary men and women the world so often takes for granted: the school teacher, the parking lot attendant, the waitress, the millworker, the mason, the trucker, the fireman, the housewife and many others.

Clocking in as these average working Americans is a cast of more than 20 Mount Union students, who will be performing such musical numbers as "All The Livelong Day," "Lovin' Al," "Just A Housewife," "Brother Trucker" and "Cleanin' Women."

The Mount Union production is directed by Dr. Douglas Hendel, professor of theatre, with musical direction by Dr. Scott Dorsey, assistant professor of music and director of choral activities.

For more information or ticket reservations, interested persons may call (330) 821-2565.
