WORKING to Open 2017-18 Season with the Opera House Players!!


WORKING to Open 2017-18 Season with the Opera House Players!! Opera House Players, Inc. proudly presents WORKING as its season opener September 8 through September 24th at the Broad Brook Opera House. WORKING is a musical based on the best-selling 1974 book of the same name by oral historian and radio commentator, Studs Terkel. Told in a series of vignettes, WORKING gives a voice to the often-overlooked men and women of the American workforce. The personal stories and songs they share about what they do for a living and how they do it whether funny, wise, or challenging...are never less than inspirational. Nominated for six Tony Awards, this classic has been updated featuring new songs by HAMILTON creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, along with favorites by Stephen Schwartz (WICKED, PIPPIN), James Taylor, and more!

This production of WORKING features direction by John Pike with musical direction by Kim Aliczi and choreography by Anna Marie Russell.
