Act 1 Design Students Take Center Stage with “Working, A Musical”

DeSales musical uses the Lehigh Valley as a springboard to celebrate the realistic and relatable struggles of the working class.

Center Valley, PA – (September 11, 2019)- Act 1 DeSales University Theatre continues its 50th anniversary season with “Working, A Musical,” running from October 10th to October 20th in the Schubert Theatre at the Labuda Center for the Performing Arts, Center Valley, PA. The production showcases the talents of Act 1’s outstanding design/technical theatre students who helm the scenic, costume, and lighting aspects of the show.

Based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book, “Working” is a collection of the hopes and dreams of the American worker.  With songs by some of Broadway’s biggest names: Stephen Schwartz, Lin Manuel-Miranda, Craig Carnelia, and James Taylor, the show paints a vivid portrait of the schoolteachers, waitresses, millworkers, masons, and housewives whose hard work is so often taken for granted. For anyone who has ever punched a timeclock, “Working, A Musical” gives an exciting and profound look into the work we do and how it brings meaning to our lives.
