Based on Studs Terkel's best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working paints a vivid portrait of the workers that the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the phone operator, the waitress, the millworker, the mason, and the housewife, just to name a few. Nominated for six Tony Awards, this classic has been updated for a modern age, featuring songs by Lin-Manuel MirandaStephen SchwartzCraig CarneliaJames TaylorMicki Grant, and more. 

Queensland Conservatorium's third-year Musical Theatre students are proud to present the localised version of Working, giving you the opportunity to hear real stories from the Brisbane community.

The show contains a timely truth: behind every job, there is a person with a story to tell. With extremely modest set and orchestra requirements, universal subject matter, and featuring a diverse ensemble cast of variable size, Working is one of the most accessible, relevant and substantive musicals ever created.

Presented by Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University
